They don't call it the "Great Minnesota Sweat Together" for nothing. Its always hot at the fair at least one day. Overall it was much hotter last year during the run of the fair but his year we will kick it off with the hottest opening day high temperature in 20 years. Check out the high temperatures from the past 20 Minnesota State Fair opening days.

Temperatures at the fair go up and down more than the rollercoaster. Check out these extremes for one day highs and rainfall amounts during the fair's run at its current site since 1885.

In fact the coldest temperature ever recorded at the fair was 33° on September 30, 1890. As for modern day records, the fair started off with a chilly temperature of 36° back on September 1, 1974. Who knows how fair the weather at the fair will be this year!
