Ramsey County Fair July 12-16, 2017

The Ramsey County Fair starts off with the White Bear Avenue Parade on a Wednesday  and runs to the following Sunday.  Unlike the Minnesota State Fair the following month, admission is free.  There is a cost to park at the Fair $3.00 but oddly there isn’t a Free Metro Transit Bus Pass as there is for Rondo Days.

The Ramsey Count Fair is all about 6 things:

  1. 4H Animals
  2. Fair Food
  3. Carnival Rides & Games
  4. Stuff to Buy
  5. Music
  6. Car Show

There is a 7th category that most people try to avoid:  Political Booths.

Since we want to have fun at the Fair too, we’re deciding to not say any more about Political Booths.
