State Fair parking in Roseville

The State Fair is around the corner and the big question is what’s the best way to get there. The State Fair offers several options including free shuttles to the fair via park-and-ride lots throughout the metro area.

There are 15 park-and-ride lots in Roseville. It’s a great service for fair guests, but it has created some problems for residents living near the park-and-ride locations. As lots filled, guests often parked on both sides of the street along the nearby blocks. Drivers had trouble navigating the narrow streets and worried that emergency vehicles would not be able to get through some streets.

The city contacted residents living closest to the park-and-ride lots. Based on their feedback, the city has approved restricting parking within a quarter mile of the lots to one side of the street, and in some instances to both sides of the street. Signs will be posted, and Roseville staff will monitor the restrictions this year and consider adjustments in future years.

Transportation options, including the location of park-and-ride lots, are available at www.mnstatefair.org/transportation.
