Pay Gap Festival Information

A festival full of shopping, laughter, and music, at the spacious outdoor West End Market located at the MN State Fair grounds. There is free entry to shop for unique gifts with local businesses in the marketplace, a variety of food vendors to snack and sip, and you can buy tickets to reserve seats at the stage to enjoy a half or full day of comedy and music entertainment. Tickets to see entertainment includes a hybrid option so that you can watch the show stream live from home if you can’t make it in.
