Monday, August 20, 2018 - Look For Us at the MN State Fair!

Are you ready for the Great Minnesota Get Together? We sure are! With over two million attending the 12 day event each year, the Minnesota State Fair becomes one of the most popular attractions in the Midwest. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it. Once again this year, we will be scattered throughout the fairgrounds representing many different aspects of our health care services. From Medicare to mental health to veggie car races, we bring many conversations to fair-goers with fun activities, dedicated booth volunteers and sought-after giveaways.

All 12 Days – PowerUp

HealthPartners is proudly sponsoring the Healthy Local foods exhibit. We will feature a fun and interactive children’s area focused on fruits and veggies. Be sure to check out the Veggie Race Track and get a photo with the Chomp cutout.
