Featured event in September; the MN Renaissance Festival is a Renaissance fair, an interactive outdoor event which focuses on recreating the look and feel of a fictional 16th Century “England-like” fantasy kingdom. It operates during weekends from mid-August until the final week in September on a site near the Minnesota River in Shakopee, a suburb of the Twin Cities.

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival began in September 1971 on a 22-acre (89,000 m2) field in Jonathan, Minnesota. More than 25,000 people visited the two weekend grand opening of the festival then named “A Celebration of Nature, Art, and Life!” It was later moved to its current site in Shakopee where it continues as one of the oldest and largest Renaissance fairs in the United States. It has played host to the early careers of such national acts as the magicians Penn & Teller and The Flying Karamazov Brothers juggling troupe, and it currently hosts acts such as Zilch the Torysteller, Twig the Fairy, Puke and S, Johnny Phoenix, The Tortuga Twins, The Danger Committee and Vilification Tennis. On 19 August 1975, Penn & Teller did their first show together at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.  Jason Mraz also worked as a pickle boy early in his performance career.
The festival features over 700 entertainers, 275 crafters, and 120 food booths.
The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is one of several such events in the United States owned and operated by Mid-America Festivals.  See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Renaissance_Festival

Amazing performances each year at the Minnesota State Fair
Stereotypical Minnesotan traits include manners known as “Minnesota nice”, Lutheranism, a strong sense of community and shared culture, and their distinctive brand of North Central American English sprinkled with Scandinavian expressions such as uff da. Potlucks, usually with a variety of hotdishes, are popular at community functions, especially church activities.

Minnesota’s Scandinavian heritage makes lutefisk a traditional holiday dish. Movies like Fargo, The Mighty Ducks, Juno, Young Adult, A Serious Man, Drop Dead Gorgeous, New in Town, Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men; the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Golden Girls, the Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and Coach; the radio show A Prairie Home Companion; and the book How to Talk Minnesotan lampoon and celebrate Minnesotan culture, speech and mannerisms.
The Minnesota State Fair, advertised as The Great Minnesota Get-Together, is an icon of state culture. In a state of 5.4 million people, there were almost 1.8 million visitors to the fair in 2009, breaking the previous record set in 2001. The fair covers the variety of Minnesotan life, including fine art, science, agriculture, food preparation, 4-H displays, music, the midway, and corporate merchandising. It is known for its displays of seed art, butter sculptures of dairy princesses, the birthing barn, and the “fattest pig” competition. One can also find dozens of varieties of food on a stick, such as Pronto Pups, cheese curds, and deep-fried candy bars. On a smaller scale, many of these attractions are offered at numerous county fairs.
Other large annual festivals include the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, Minneapolis’s Aquatennial and Mill City Music Festival, Moondance Jam in Walker, Sonshine Christian music festival in Willmar, the Judy Garland Festival in Grand Rapids, Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake, and WE Fest in Detroit Lakes.  See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota#Popular_culture
