(Falcon Heights, MN) — Minnesota State Fair attendance is bouncing back this year. The 12-day event drew one-point-eight million visitors, short of the all-time attendance record of two-point-one million set in 2019. The number of fairgoers in 2022 was up from the 2021 number of one-point-three million. It’s unclear whether two shooting incidents on and near the fairgrounds on Labor Day weekend affected overall attendance.
