Thank You For A Great State Fair!

At Jack Pixley Sweeps, the Minnesota State Fair is one of our favorite events of the year! Not only do we get to enjoy all the fair has to offer, but we also get the chance to meet new – and current – customers. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to see us and signed up for chimney services at the fair this year.

Why We Love the Minnesota State Fair

For many Minneapolis/St. Paul families, the Minnesota State Fair is one of the highlights of the year and marks the transition from the end of summer to the beginning of fall. Known as “The Great Minnesota Get-Together,” the state fair has been held annually since 1859. With nearly 2 million visitors this year, 2017 was one of the biggest fairs to date!

The Minnesota State Fair is one of the largest state fairs in the country; with the largest average daily attendance and second largest overall attendance in the country, the fair draws visitors from all over the state. It was also voted as the 2015 best state fair in the country by USA Today!

From livestock shows, Machinery Hill, cooking and art competitions, 4-H demonstrations, headlining entertainment, rides, and games, and the chance to learn about new products and services the fair has something for everyone. Fair fans of all ages can also enjoy the wide variety of new and classic foods – most of it on a stick and deep fried.
