MVMA Surgery Suite at the Minnesota State Fair

The MVMA Surgery Suite was started in 1992. Surgeries are performed at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. This is a great chance to give back to your profession by giving the public an up-close view at the work you do while educating them about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. Volunteers are needed.


Minnesota State Fair 2020 is Canceled
At a time when MVMA staff is usually ramping up the state fair volunteer solicitation emails we are sad to share what you probably already know, the 2020 MN State Fair will not be held. We are happy that the health of all fairgoers and volunteers have driven this decision.

We want our volunteers to know that we look forward to planning 2021 MN State Fair exhibits and you will be receiving those volunteer emails and phone calls (if necessary) because we could not do it without you.
