MN State Fair Parade Looking for something extra fun this weekend? There's a wonderful tradition in Minnesota of county fairs, festivals, carnivals, summer concerts, art and antique shows and other special celebrations that make the Minneapolis area a wonderful place all year long - winter, spring, summer or fall. The Minnesota State Fair, held each year near Labor Day, is the second largest state fair in the United States. And late summer also brings the Rennaisance Festival in Shakopee that is one of the best in the country. How could you not like the comic antics of Puke and Snot? Both are excellent family fun.

Neighbors Resource invites you to explore this schedule of some fabulous community events, carnivals, fairs and festivals your family can enjoy together in the greater Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul MN, including outdoor concerts, movies in the parks, car shows, art shows, and antique shows - many with special attractions just for the kids.
