How do vendors land a booth at the Minnesota State Fair?
August 29, 2023
Sara Peterson could hardly believe it when a Minnesota State Fair representative called just two weeks before the fair began and told her that Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) had been awarded a booth at the 2023 Great Minnesota Get-Together.
"I felt like we won the lottery," Peterson said last week as she finished organizing space No. 50 in the West End Market, where the nonprofit planned to sell clay coffee mugs from Haiti, woven grass baskets made by women in Uganda and colorful creations made out of recycled oil drums to raise money to provide meals for kids around the globe.
Reader Thomas McComas said he and his four brothers have long wondered about how to get a State Fair booth.
