(KWNO) The 2020 Minnesota State Fair has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
The decision was announced Friday morning. The Board of Managers determined it was impossible to safely conduct the two-week event that draws an average of two million people.
It’s just the sixth time in 116 years the Great Minnesota Get-together has been canceled. The last time was during the Polio Epidemic in 1946.
