We love nature. We also love the Minnesota State Fair. Who says you can’t experience both at the same time? We’ve put together a list of our favorite places to get in touch with nature at the Minnesota State Fair.

COMPEER ARENA AND LEE & ROSE WARNER COLISEUM

These two buildings are full of animals and their humans. You’ll see horses, cattle, llamas, goats, sheep, dogs, and the variety of events that they compete in. Spend minutes or hours here, there is always something to see. Don’t forget to check out the adjacent barns that house all the critters!

DAIRY BUILDING

Although you wouldn’t think from the name of the building that there would be a whole lot of nature in here, there is. This is a great place to find the things you need to experience nature, like outdoor gear, wool products, and more, made by Minnesota-based companies.

DNR BUILDING AND PARK

Escape on a Minnesota outdoor adventure in the middle of the fair! See 45 species of Minnesota-native fish in the giant pond, climb a 65-foot-tall fire tower for some panoramic views, watch a raptor demonstration and more.

MINNESOTA LOTTERY BOOTH

Stop and see us to learn all about how we’re playing our part to help nature. A portion of every dollar played supports funds that benefit the great state of Minnesota. We’ll be there every day of the fair giving you your chance to play your part by purchasing tickets!
