The Minnesota State Fair tradition continues with the Minnesota Farmers CARE theme. Since more than half of Minnesotans have never met a farmer, MFBF has created an opportunity for the public to ask farmers questions at the fair. Minnesota farmers will be volunteering all 12 days of the State Fair at the MFBF building where fairgoers can meet farmers who are raising and growing their food.
Adults and children can all learn something new about Minnesota agriculture. MFBF will have drawings for children’s books, a rain barrel, and a new giveaway for a chance at a $250 grocery card. Walk away with a free thermal lunch bag or oven mitt by learning four new facts about agriculture and talking to a Minnesota farmer.
The MFBF State Fair building is located at 1305 Underwood Street, directly across from the Food Building and behind the giant slide. The State Fair runs August 25–September 5. Come on out and see the continued tradition at the MFBF State Fair building!
