Many of the county fairs have had to start charging an entry fee in recent years. It’s usually nominal and less than the cost of a cup of coffee so it’s still a bargain for the amount of fun inside the gates. This year the Dakota County Fair Free Admission Day is happening twice. The first is Monday, August 5th and the second is Sunday August 11th. These days are an especially good deal if you have a larger family or are going with several adults.
However like I mentioned admission on other days is quite reasonable between $2-$5. Parking is $5 per car. The fairs runs August 5-11
Some of the other events:
