Dakota County’s transportation services will be featured in the Government Building at this year’s Dakota County Fair Aug. 9–15 in Farmington.
The county’s “On the Go” theme will highlight construction equipment, road safety and more. Adults and children alike will be able to interact with hands-on exhibits and receive prizes while learning about road construction, winter driving safety and the county vehicles used to get our work done for residents and motorists.
Government Building features include:
- Free ice scrapers for adults and construction hats for kids
- The fair’s largest sandbox
- Traffic cone ring toss
- County vehicle displays
- Art activities
- Information on county resources
The Dakota County Government Building is open noon–7 p.m. Monday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The Government Building is just north of Food Alley and across from the large parking lot when entering the fairgrounds from Third Street.
Admission to the fair is free this year.
