Festivals | Fairs

The word "boring" just isn't in our vocabulary.

 Minneapolis is a city that likes to celebrate, and we're one of the best in the nation at doing it. We have the largest 12-day state fair in the nation - The Minnesota State Fair  - where over 450 different types of food can be found; deep fried, on a stick or even in a bucket. There are larger state fairs (Texas for example)…but it's a month long, and they count attendance differently. Iowa is a 10-day fair. Indiana is also a 10-day fair. You can step back in time to the days of fair damsels and court jesters with the Renaissance Festival, a seven week ode to the olden times where you can eat oversized turkey drumsticks and cheer on your favorite jouster. In the winter, we light up the streets with the nationally - acclaimed Holidazzle Parade - a three week celebration of the serene beauty of the holiday season.

Whatever the season, whatever the day, you're bound to find a celebration breaking out in the streets of Minneapolis.
