Craftstravaganza is held in the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Eco Experience Building (a.k.a. the Progress Center), on the north side of the intersection at Cosgrove St. and Randall Ave.

Directions to the Fairgrounds

The Minnesota State Fairgrounds are located at 1265 Snelling Ave in St. Paul, between Larpenteur and Como Ave.

Construction at Snelling Ave

Note there is road construction during this year's event. Please plan for traffic impacts during your trip. Hwy 51/Snelling Ave. will be one lane in each direction between Como Ave. and Hwy 36. The intersection at Midway Parkway will be closed. The only way to enter the Fairgrounds from the main gate is to take a right turn on Midway Pkway from southbound Snelling Ave.

The Fairgrounds north entrance from Larpenteur Avenue will also be open during Craftstravaganza. We recommend using this gate to avoid traffic on Snelling.
