The first Minnesota State Fair was held in 1859.
The all-time attendance record was set in 2014 -- 1,824,830 people attended the Fair.
During a typical year, 26,000 gallons of milk are served at the All You Can Drink Milk booth.
Theodore Roosevelt delivered the famous "Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick" speech at the Fair in 1901.
The record high temperature during the State Fair was 104º set in 1931; the record low was 33° set in 1890.
Due to a polio epidemic, the Fair was not held in 1946.
The oldest amusement ride at the fairgrounds is Ye Old Mill, which began operating in 1915.
