The Last Day of The Fair

Sad I know, but the time has come. It is the final day of "The Great Minnesota Get-Together” and we

First Saturday At The Fair & Kid Rock

The first Saturday at the Fair is upon us. So you know what that means – expect high attendance numbers and potentially seeing some faces you haven’t seen in a while (you know, like old neighbors and other acquaintances like that).

Speaking of faces, we look forward to seeing all of your happy faces at the fair this year, and especially at the Grandstand - where hopefully you got seats to some of the great shows going on this year by getting tickets through Ticket King.

Tonight, Kid Rock takes the Grandstand stage by storm in what is sure to be a rockin’ concert. If you haven’t yet purchased tickets for what is going to be a surefire awesome show, you can (aka probably should) do so today here.

Who Needs a Minnesota State Fair Grandstand Ticket?

Everybody except two year olds. So if you yourself are a two year old – CONGRATS, you don’t need to purchase a ticket (that said you can’t just walk into a concert on your own Baby Billy. If you’re a two year old you will need a parental guardian with you who has purchased a ticket for themselves. Also, if you’re a two year old, I doubt you were able to read any of this).

Here is the lowdown from the official website on who needs a ticket:
For all ticketed Grandstand events, all children two years of age and over must have a ticket. Children under the age of two will be allowed entry without a ticket, however, they are required to sit on the lap of a ticket holder.
If you’re above the age of 2 and are interested in purchasing tickets to any of the great Grandstand concerts, you can here!
