From May 14 through Sunday, May 22, guests will be able to get the full automotive experience, with the latest luxury cars from every vehicle to the RAMINATOR.
ST PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota State Fairgrounds will be home to the 49th annual Twin Cities Auto Show, the largest auto show in the Upper Midwest, May 13 through May 22.
KARE 11 Meteorologist Belinda Jensen will be live at the Auto Show during the KARE 11 Saturday, this year’s show from what attendees can expect from a number of interviewees.
While at the fairgrounds, attendees will be able to enjoy some classic fair fares, including Pronto Pups, Cheese Curds, Tom Thumb Mini Donuts and Sweet Martha’s Cookies.
“This is your license to dream,” said Scott Lambert, president of the Twin Cities Auto Show.
Back by popular demand, the RAMINATOR is returning to the auto show.
At ten feet tall, 12-foot wide, this five-ton monster has a 365 CI Supercharged Hemi Engine and will be a free week-long event for conducting daily car-crushing shows.
This year’s event is for everyone, including the most popular electric vehicles, or EVs.
“We’re really encouraging people to come down to the Xcel Garage. Talk to them about how you live with the vehicle, how you maintain it, how much you charge it and then take a test drive,” said Lambert.
Inside the Progress Center, the starting price range was a little more expensive, with cars starting at $ 75,000.
“Everybody wants to see the ‘Luxury Lane’ inside the Progress Center at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. People can come and look at the cars they are looking for,” said Lambert.
“It’s more than just a grocery-getter, it’s something you can do with some fun and show off to the neighbors,” Lambert added.
At the Grandstand, over 150 classic vehicles will be on display.
One of those car enthusiasts is Jeff Faffler, who bought a 1978 Z28 Camaro back in 1985 for $ 3,800, just a few months after graduating from high school.
“I was looking for a Camaro at the time and this one popped out.
He’s made some improvements along the way and the interior and has no plans to sell it.
The Twin Cities Auto Show is open 10 am through 9 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Wednesdays, 4 pm to 9 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 am to 7 pm on Sundays.
Tickets can be found online and cost $ 20 for adults onsite, with a $ 5 discount available online. Teens are $ 5, while kids 10 and under are free.
