PLEASE JOIN US the weekend of
June 19-21, 2020
for the “47th Annual Back to the 50’s Weekend!”

Thank you to all for your questions regarding the COVID-19
and the Back to the 50’s Weekend

As of now, March 14, 2020; MSRA’s “Back to the 50’s Weekend” will be going forward as planned. MSRA is being kept updated and informed; and will make a decision, should it be necessary, based on direction from National, State and Local Health Officials as it concerns the ability to contain the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

If the State of Minnesota and/or the Minnesota State Fairgrounds informs us it’s time to cancel our MSRA’s “Back to the 50’s Weekend” event, we will. The Minnesota State Fair Board is continuing to go forward with their plans for the Minnesota State Fair in August without anticipated interruption.

Citing a quote from Abdu Sharkawy; an infectious disease specialist doctor at the University of Toronto in Canada: “I implore you all. Temper fear with reason, panic with patience and uncertainty with education. We have an opportunity to learn a great deal about health hygiene and limiting the spread of innumerable transmissible diseases in our society. Let’s meet this challenge together in the best spirit of compassion for others, patience, and above all, an unfailing effort to seek truth, facts and knowledge as opposed to conjecture, speculation and catastrophizing.”

As additional information becomes available MSRA will continue to provide updates by way of this website. Please use this platform as your resource for the status of this event.
Thank you.
