Wiser Living Exhibit, MN State Fair

Welcome to Wiser Living 2014 at the Minnesota State Fair!

Where you will find Smart Solutions for Aging At Home!


WHAT is Wiser Living?

Wiser Living is designed to help consumers, caregivers and the general public become “wiser” about the many products and services available in our communities to maximize independence and choice as we age. The exhibit also features a “Front Porch Stage” with daily speakers, demonstrations, entertainment and more to attract fairgoers and provide additional opportunities for public education.

WHY Wiser Living?

The “Baby Boom generation” has hit its peak.  More than ever, “boomers” feel the pinch of both aging themselves along with caring for aging parents. People age 65 and older will double in Minnesota over the next 15 years (660,000 today to 1.3 million by 2025). More people will want and need to “age in place,” often with chronic health conditions, and will benefit from getting wiser about solutions they can use to age well and more easily care for others at home.

WHERE is Wiser Living?

Wiser Living is located on the outside of the 4-H Building on the fairgrounds.

WHEN is Wiser Living?

Wiser Living at the Minnesota State Fair will take place August 21 – September 1 in 2014. The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m each day.
