(Falcon Heights, MN) — New resources are being added at the Minnesota State Fair for visitors with disabilities. Some performances at Schilling Arena will include audio descriptions and captioning, with ASL interpreters available on request. The Fraser Sensory Building will provide a calm space for visitors who find the fair overwhelming and will be staffed by trained sensory support volunteers. Disabled parking will continue to be available in each surrounding lot, along with a designated park-and-ride at the Oscar Johnson arena for people with disabilities.
