Ever wonder how you get to be a performer in the Minnesota State Fair Talent Show? It all starts at the county level. The Benton County Fair talent show is slated for August 1 and 2. There will be two nights of local talent all competing to move on to the final round on Saturday, August 2. The winners move on to the Minnesota State Fair Talent Show to represent central Minnesota at the state level.

Do you have a talent you feel could take you all the way to the Minnesota State Fair? Or, maybe you're wanting to test out a new talent in front of your community for the first time.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 4 finishers in all 3 divisions.
