The Great Minnesota Get-Together is coming up August 23 through September 3 - twelve jam-packed days of what makes the Land of 10,000 Lakes the best.  Along with the carnival rides, the farm animals, exhibits, and things to eat on a stick comes the usual lineup of entertainment.  From music shows to family-acts, the Minnesota State Fair offers something for everyone and every taste.

Sure - there's the concerts in the Grandstand - which often bring in the top-acts in rock, pop, country, and more.  But if you're looking for something with a little more variety (and a little more "free") then you'll want to check out the shows scheduled for the Leinie Lodge Bandshell Stage.

The Minnesota State Fair has just announced the lineup of performers scheduled to fill the 2018 Leinie Lodge Bandshell Stage - and it's a pretty diverse schedule.  If you like rock and pop - they've got you covered with the En Vogue, the BoDeans, Steve Augeri, and the Tower of Power.  Country?  Check out Clay Walker, Carlene Carter, or Bryan White.   And if Polish-styled polka music is more your style, the ever-popular Chmielewski Funtime Band will perform.

Don't let the price tag fool you; some of the best entertainment found at the Minnesota State Fair is often located in the Leinie Lodge Bandshell, with performances throughout the day and nightly shows at 8:30 PM.
