It's called the "Great Minnesota Get Together." The Minnesota State Fair runs from August 22 - September 2, in 2019.  So, it's still a few months out, but, the powers that be in the State Fair office have been working hard to get entertainment lined up for the visitors to the fair.

They have released the grandstand shows, those entertainers that people are paying an extra fee to see, you can see that line-up here. Now, they have released the list of free entertainment, well, free with your paid admission into the fair.

The list includes big-time entertainers and local Minnesota entertainers. There is something for everyone. For the 80's music fans, Belinda Carlisle, for country fans, Lonestar. I've seen Lonestar, they put on a good show. For the fans on 60's music, Herman's Hermits. You can see the evening shows below:
