The Minnesota State Fair’s Amateur Talent Contest will return this summer bringing to the stage singers, dancers, instrumentalists and every type of performer in between. Taking the stage for fair guests to enjoy and support, these amateur performers compete for the right to be named Minnesota’s top talent.
Registration for auditions is open to everyone through 4 p.m., July 28.
In total, nearly $20,000 in prize money will be awarded to the first- through third-place winners in three divisions: Open Division (any age), Teen Division (ages 13-18) and Preteen Division (ages 12 and under).
Auditions run July 26, through Aug. 1, at the Leinie Lodge Bandshell on the fairgrounds and begin at 5:30 p.m., on weekdays, and 11 a.m., on Saturday and Sunday. The public is welcome to attend auditions and admission is free.
