The 2019 Minnesota State Fair begins today!  It's Thrifty Thursday all day and tonight Darius Rucker takes the Grandstand Stage with some old friends.

Hootie & The Blowfish bring their Group Therapy Tour, with special guest Barenaked Ladies, to the Great Minnesota Get Together tonight at 7:30 p.m.

The show is sold out, but tickets do remain on broker sites like Stubhub if you're willing to pay over face value for your ticket.  It'll be a walk down memory lane with the group that dominated part of the 90's.

Thrifty Thursday also means Mighty Midway & Kidway discounts all day.  You can also enjoy fun with science and technology on STEM Day at Dan Patch Park.

Get today's full schedule below, including the lineup for the Leinie Lodge Bandshell, Schell's Stage at Schilling Amphitheater, Family Fair Stage at Baldwin Park, Ramberg Music Cafe Festival of Nations Stage at the International Bazaar and more.
