Your customizable, searchable, offline GPS map for food, vendors, attractions, and more at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair! Due to COVID-19 this app is not current to 2020.
This is your ticket to navigating the chaos of the Minnesota State Fair with ease! It allows users to see the locations and details of over 1000 food and merchandise vendors in an intuitive map that can seamlessly zoom and track your position with GPS. All attractions are displayed on the map by default so that you can always find what is nearby.
The data can also be filtered by category so that the map shows only what you want to see! You can search for a vendor by name and locate their position on the map relative to where you are. The dynamic zooming display with native app controls has three base layers to choose from including a day map, a night map, and satellite imagery. Compare this to the single-vendor low-quality PDF maps that other state fair apps use!
This app has been designed to work completely offline and in airplane mode. It includes 20 megabytes of bundled tile layers so that the map dynamically changes as you zoom without needing to use 4G cellular data. This is also useful as wireless towers are often overloaded during the fair, making offline mode essential! GPS location will still function in airplane mode, so never worry about getting lost!
Points and point clusters are labeled with unique icons and/or marker colors based on their attributes so that they can be effortlessly identified at a glance. Vendors offering promotional items as part of the Blue Ribbon Bargain Book deals are listed with a larger icon that is bright yellow to help you quickly locate the deals and make the most of your money at the fair! The money that this feature can save you will easily offset the cost of this app!
When any point is clicked, it will display a popup that gives a summary of information regarding the vendor, what they are selling, and where they are located. The map includes 9 categories of food vendors, 18 categories of merchandise vendors, and a wealth of practical data such as the locations of restrooms, ATM machines, security, artistic points of interest, parking lots, smoking areas, hand-washing stations, storm shelters, rides, games, WiFi hotspots, and more!
Use GPS with your smartphone to locate yourself in the jungle of the fairgrounds and clearly see everything that is nearby. Prevent unnecessary stress and effort by displaying only the vendors that you want while getting the best deals and promotions!
Always know where amenities such as restrooms, storm shelters, and exit gates are at as these points will not cluster on distant zooms like the food and merchandise vendor points! Unclustered points can still be turned off if you prefer not to use these layers.
All of the events are outlined and summarized on the info page with links to display the locations on the map and a weblink to the official State Fair schedule. This includes concerts and other stage performances, fun attractions like rides, games, and other amusements, all of the major fair buildings such as the Grandstand, 4H, etc., and animals such as rabbits, sheep, goats, horses, birds, steer, pigs, etc. This is the easiest way to quickly find the things that interest you and make the most out of your time at the fair!

Ratings and Reviews
Location of the Hangar
The old pet center needs to be relabeled to show the location of the Hangar.
This app worked perfectly for my family!! Instead of wandering around aimlessly we were able to easily find all the food, merchandise and exhibits that we came to the fair to see/get. It also made it easy to keep track of each other. The app was a tad bit complicated for me to navigate because it offers SOOO MUCH INFO but I’m not very tech; my daughter showed me how to use the tool that I needed and I just ignored the rest. WORTH EVERY PENNY!! GET IT if you’re going to the fair!
Really excited about this app but
My understanding was that this App had GPS capabilities I have a reading Dyslexia and it would’ve been very helpful to have step-by-step /Turn by turn directions around the fair… However I could not get it to work in that way it would only give me addresses even when I turned on GPS and location services Hope you have better luck next year with this app
