CGA Minnesota State Fair Visioning Graphic


Comprehensive master planning allows us to understand the current condition of the fairgrounds and assess weaknesses, strengths and opportunities. The end result is a visionary plan that allows fair leaders to prioritize projects.

Identifying flow

Master planning helps identify neighborhoods in the fair, creating clarity and the ability to enhance variety.







Improving Traffic Patterns

We will diagram circulation throughout the fair, as well as entry points and key locations. This provides guidance in how best to create a positive experience for visitors from the moment of their arrival and determine if the flow is working.






Fully developed site plans

After planning, we will create a fully developed site plan, integrating existing infrastructure and historic buildings. Special attention is given to the entry experience and the way in which your guests begin their day at the fair.


Comprehensive analysis

Detailed analysis of specific areas can lead to fully re-developed neighborhoods.
