Minnesota State Fair

August 21, 2014 to September 1, 2014

Minnesota State Fairgrounds, 1265 Snelling Avenue North, St. Paul

What happens at the fair?

4-H at the Minnesota State Fair is not just a fun annual event. Every summer, thousands of 4-H youth participate in the state fair to showcase the knowledge and skills they've gained throughout the year, and to continue their learning experiences.

4-H youth spend months working on projects designed to equip them with essential life skills such as problem solving, decision making, project management, communications and public speaking. 4-H'ers then share their accomplishments and educate the public about their subject at their local county fair. Those who demonstrate the highest achievements are then selected to participate in 4-H at the Minnesota State Fair!

At both county and state fairs, 4-H'ers meet one-on-one with experts to have their projects evaluated, discuss what they've learned, and identify future learning opportunities. 4-H'ers also lead visitors on tours of the 4-H Building and barns, and conduct workshops and hands-on demonstrations for the public.

4-H at the Minnesota State Fair not only makes great memories, it helps 4-H youth grow into successful adults. Read more.
