MN Billboard Project works with Minnesota artists to inspire progressive social change.
MN BILLBOARD PROJECT 2021
We’ve reserved two billboards in close proximity to the Minnesota Fairgrounds for display early August through Labor Day 2021 to be viewable during The Great Minnesota Get Together. Nearly 2 million people attend the Minnesota State Fair every year! People from all walks of life throughout the state attend the fair, and this gives our designs a chance to be seen by even more people. We are completely funded by donations! Please consider a $5 donation to ensure these designs are installed!
