State Fair 2019

Your blue ribbon state fair tradition

The best route to the State Fair is on the bus!

You go to the State Fair for the food, the animals, the rides and more! Getting to the "Great Minnesota Get-Together" on the bus is a fun, blue ribbon tradition, too. Instead of driving, park your car for free and take a stress-free, non-stop air-conditioned ride straight to the fairgrounds.

Take a State Fair Express bus and you'll save on gas and parking costs. Plus, we'll drop you off and pick you up right outside the gates!
