You're going to have to fork over more dough this summer if you want to get into the Minnesota State Fair.

According to, the prices will officially increase beginning on February 2nd. The changes aren't huge or significant but they are worth mentioning.

People ages 13 to 64 will see a one-dollar spike at the gate, with ticket prices rising from $14 dollars to $15 dollars this year.

Children ages 5 to 12 and those 65 and over will also see a one-dollar price increase to $13 dollars, up from $12 dollars last year.

Kids 4 years old and under will get into the fair for free.

The good news is you won't have to budget too much to get into the fair but it may mean a few less fried Oreos.

So why the increase? Many factors including "rising costs in production, facilities, upkeep, public safety" and more.

If you want to get ahead of the price increase, you can purchase tickets now online for last year's rate. Think of all the foods on a stick you could eat with the extra few bucks you save!
