Update on the 2020 North Dakota State Fair

We know there are a lot of questions and uncertainty in our communities right now. Like you, we also have many concerns, but the wellness of our guests, our staff and our partners is at the top of the list. We are closely monitoring all aspects of the coronavirus situation and making daily, and sometimes hourly, decisions on how to best proceed. With that being said, at this time we are diligently moving forward to bring you a great 2020 fair.

When the concerns over large public gatherings end, and they will end, we know people are going to be ready to get out, see their friends and have some fun and there is no better place to do that than at the North Dakota State Fair. We want to be there for you. If by chance this does continue into the summer months and we are forced to cancel, all tickets purchased from the North Dakota State Fair will be refunded.

The North Dakota State Fair is continuing our daily operations, but our office is closed to the general public. To contact us, please call 701-857-7620 or email us at ndsf@minot.com. Thank you!
