MN State Fair: August 29 Fifth Saturday Outing

It's a wonderful thing when August has five Saturdays - because that means we can once again hold our August Fifth Saturday outing at the Great Minnesota Get Together where there's a whole building dedicated to fiber arts and other creative endeavors!

As usual, several of our members have entries in the fair - so we'll be very excited to see the ribbons. But what's also very exciting is that a few days after this outing (Monday, August 31) our group will be doing crochet demos all day in this very same building - so Saturday will be a good opportunity to check out the demo area in a little more detail.

For the Fifth Saturday outing, here are the details:

  • Saturday August 29 9:00 AM to approximately 11:00 AM
  • Gather at the entrance to the Creative Activities Building - it's at the end of the building near the main fair entrance on Snelling Avenue. There's some benches close to the entrance, we'll meet there promptly at 9:00 AM to step inside.

Once we start our "tour", we'll be very informal - plan to enjoy the sights at your own pace or with a few others. The end time is only approximate and we're going early enough in the day that you can stay and visit other parts of the Fair (corn dogs anyone?) or leave after you've been inspired by all the crochet and fiber arts wonders.

Here's the direct link to the State Fair Express Bus service page - but be sure to click around on the entire Minnesota State Fair site - lots of good information to help you plan your visit!
