As you know, the Great Minnesota Get-Together looked a bit different this year, as we weren’t able to get-together in person. However, it presented the Fair with an opportunity to do something new and innovative, which they did – and tremendously well, we might add.

A Virtual Celebration of Culture and Community 2020 (#CCC2020), OMG Media’s mini-concert series highlighting past performers from the Minnesota State Fair and local non-profit organizations was proud to be a part of the Minnesota State Fair’s At-Home Edition, which ran on the Fair’s website and social media channels August 27 through September 7. In addition to our mini-concert series, it featured daily fun fair facts, memories, demonstrations and entertainment, history tidbits, creative contests and more. 

We were thrilled to be able to highlight these incredible non-profit organizations as part of the series. It’s not too late to donate, please click on the links below to support their work.

Thank you to the Minneapolis Foundation for making this event possible.

As a Minnesota State Fair partner for the past five years, it was an honor to be a part of their At-Home Edition and be able to bring entertainment to Fair Fans in a safe fashion, celebrate culture and community, and spotlight local non-profit organizations who are doing incredible work on the frontlines of this pandemic all-in-one.  It made for a nostalgic Labor Day weekend celebration and one you can continue to partake in online if you’re ever craving the sultry sound of Caitlyn Smith, Tank and the Bangas’ feel-good vibe, or being taken to church by The War and Treaty that we hope you will share with your family and friends.  In case you missed #CCC2020, you can catch the performances any time on YouTube.
 
Thank you for watching and for supporting the highlighted non-profits.  We look forward to celebrating culture and community with you at the Fair in 2021!
