Minnesota State Fair Grounds

Minnesota State Fair, 265 North Snelling Ave. N. in St. Paul

Besides being home to our famous State Fair, the Minnesota State Fair Grounds hosts year-round events, like festivals, expos and sales.

Park and Ride to Como Zoo

During the summer months (except during the State Fair), visitors to Como Zoo can park at the State Fair Grounds and catch a shuttle to and from the zoo. This is great for a couple reasons: 1) You don't want to ruin grown up moods trying to find parking on a busy day; and 2) Kids love the zoo bus. It's a fun extra for their day and a nice way to finish off the visit without tears.
