Minnesota State Fair Postcards

Postcards from the Minnesota State Fair are fun to find! I make a point of finding the featured postcard which is created from a poster used to promote the fair. Each year they commission a new print from a different artist.

Here is this year’s print and a link to artist info.

Like any state fair, they do have a lot of animals. Personally, I would have liked a picture of the state’s largest boar.

Here are a few postcards from previous years.

You can see more at this online gallery, plus many of these are available as postcards that can be purchased at the fair (although some are no longer available, including my favorite as shown below).

Artist is Michael Birawer (2007)

Hello! I love all things stationery, papery, epistolary including planners, office supplies, mail, postcards, doodles, desks and organization, postage stamps and mail art.

    I have all of the posters but am looking for postcards for 2004 and 2011. Do you have any thoughts as to where I can find them? Or could you print more for those years?

      Hi Virginia! In the past I’ve been able to purchase postcards from some of the previous years at the state fair store by the main front gate on Snelling. Once you come into the fair the small store is on your right. They’ve had a wide variety of postcards and other fair items. I don’t print them. I just buy them when I can. Or have a friend purchase for me as I haven’t been to the fair since Covid. Maybe this year.
