Wiser Living Exhibit, MN State Fair

Welcome to Wiser Living 2015 at the Minnesota State Fair!

Where you will find Smart Solutions for Aging Well!


WISER LIVING for 2015!

Join us in 2015 and showcase YOUR great services and products to nearly 1.8 million fairgoers!


WHAT is Wiser Living?

WISER LIVING is designed to showcase smart solutions for helping us all age well. We might be getting older, but we can also get “wiser” about the many products and services available in our communities to maximize independence, choice & fulfillment as we age and care for ourselves and others.

The exhibit also features the “Front Porch” stage, with daily speakers, demonstrations and entertainment to attract fairgoers and provide additional opportunities for public education and fun. The Minnesota State Fair is a very effective way to reach thousands of potential customers in a short period of time.

NEW traffic drivers for 2015!

  • TPT Public Television will exhibit at the fair every day, and will share the Front Porch stage with Wiser Living!
  • The Front Porch will feature a daily main entertainment offering, that will be listed on the MSF Daily Schedule apps and calendars!
  • MSF marketing is working with Wiser Living to get more media coverage this year!
  • We will greet and have a giveaway offered to all the Senior Busses that come to the fair, to encourage them to stop by Wiser Living!
  • And we will have a float in the parade to reach thousands more each day!

WHERE is Wiser Living?

Wiser Living is located on the outside of the 4-H Building, right along the trolley and parade routes, on the same bustling street with these ever-popular state fair exhibits: Education Building, Creative Arts, Home Improvement, Fine Arts, and the EcoExperience.

WHEN is Wiser Living?

Wiser Living at the Minnesota State Fair will take place August 27 – September 7, 2015. The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day.

WHY Wiser Living?

The “Baby Boom generation” has hit its peak. The population of people age 65 and older will double in Minnesota over the next 15 years (660,000 today to 1.3 million by 2025). More Minnesotans will want and need to “age in place,” often with chronic health conditions, and will benefit from becoming wiser about solutions to age well and more easily care for others.
