The fair before the fair: Black Entrepreneur State Fair underway in Minneapolis

In the wake of unrest last summer and the pandemic, the Black Entrepreneur State Fair was created. It was seen as a way to bring the community together, in a neighborhood that was hurting to support minority-owned businesses. It was a success and is back for year two. The fair is in the parking lot of the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis. There are food vendors, 60 local makers, music and a kid zone with bounce houses and games. The Black Entrepreneur State Fair runs through August 28th, 11am to 8pm daily at Chicago Ave and Lake St.
