Introducing the 1854 Society

In 1854, a group of Minnesotans had great foresight as they launched what we now know and love as the Minnesota State Fair. Their vision and dedication created a fair that would become one of Minnesota’s premier institutions which endures as a time-honored and beloved tradition.

In honor of our fair’s beginnings, we are launching the new 1854 Society to recognize our forward-thinking donors who have made planned gifts and shown dedication to benefiting the fair beyond their lifetimes.

If you have, or are considering, a planned gift or are including the State Fair in your estate plans please contact us to enroll in the 1854 Society.
