The Alphabet Forest at the Minnesota State Fair


The Alphabet Forest is an absolute must see attraction at the Minnesota State Fair! Laidback and fun, the this exhibit  is perfect fun for the whole family!

While visiting the fair don't forget to stop by the Alphabet ForestDebra Frasier, author of eight children’s picture books, is proud to be from Minnesota. She loves the State Fair, too!  She wrote and illustrated an alphabet book based on her trips to the Minnesota State Fair. So it seems appropriate that she will be at the Minnesota State Fair bringing the Alphabet Forest to you.

The Alphabet Forest is open in Baldwin Park each day of the fair (Aug. 22 – Sept. 2, 2019) from 9:00 am-8:00 pm.

This is an extremely laidback activity, and it’s in the most shaded spot of the entire fair (hence the name Alphabet Forest).
