The Minnesota State Fair just announced a few changes for the 2022 fair. Plus, discounted ticket prices are available now through January 31st so if you know you are going this year, you may want to purchase your tickets now.
Because COVID cancelled the fair in 2020, and impacted the fair in 2021, the Minnesota State Fair reported significant financial loss in the past 2 years. Their operating loss was $16.5 million in 2020 and $1.3 million in 2021. But they are planning to have the fair again this year in 2022.
Operating hours will be changed in 2022. They are open one hour later and closed one hour earlier each day.
From Thursday, August 25th through Sunday, September 4th, their hours are 7:00am to 11:00pm. Previously it was 6:00am to midnight.
On Labor Day, September 5th, their hours will be 7:00am to 9:00pm. Last year they were open 6:00am to 9:00pm on Labor Day.
