Get married at the county fair—for free!

Posted: Wednesday, July 3, 2024


Love is in the air at the Minnesota Judicial Branch, as judges get ready to marry couples for free at several county fairs this summer.

Judges will perform weddings at the Dakota, Goodhue, and McLeod county fairs in August. Couples do not need to live in these counties to have a wedding at one of these fairs.

Couples who would like to get married at one of the fairs simply need to choose the fair which they’d like to hold their wedding, then contact that county court to register.

Dakota County Fair weddings: Aug. 5, 6, 7, 8, 10
