Looking for fun things to do this weekend with your family? 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? And be sure to check out our listings of Live Music Venues in Minneapolis for nighttime fun.
