I used to winter over two cars at Derek’s but I think he’s managed to fill his space up with his projects.

I used to store one of my Chevelle's over winter at the MN State Fair Grounds in St. Paul.  Looks like it's already full for this year, so this won't help until next year.

The Good:

-Relatively cheap storage at $200 for the duration

The Bad:

-No guarantees of a space until AFTER Aug. 1st you have to send in a deposit and hope there's room

-It's on concrete, but not temperature controlled.  One year I picked my car up in April and the condensation was dripping off the cars from the floor sweating, so not good for rust prevention.

-You receive a scheduled date and time so need to be flexible for both drop off and pick up.

-You have no access to the car once it's dropped off, and needs to be winterized.

Here's the site details:  WEBSITE LINK

Here's the minutia details:

2021 – 2022 STORAGE

The Minnesota State Fair stores automobiles, trucks, boats, motor homes, travel trailers, etc. in exhibit and

livestock buildings from late October until late March of each year. The storage appointment form for

2021-2022 should be:

1. Printed off, completed and returned AFTER Aug. 1, 2021.

2. Mailed in with a $20 non-refundable deposit fee for each item stored. This amount will be

deducted from your final storage balance. A check or money order should be made payable to

Minnesota State Fair.

THANK YOU FOR STORING WITH THE MINNESOTA STATE FAIR!

MINNESOTA STATE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY (STATE FAIR)

STORAGE DEPARTMENT REQUIREMENTS

1. All portable propane/butane gas tanks and portable fuel tanks must be removed or emptied by

order of the Fire Marshall. (Reference NFPA, Chapter 5, paragraph 5100.) Exception: container 2

1/2 lbs. and under, not exceeding 24 containers.

2. Storage of “5th wheel” travel trailers and semi-tractors and trailers CANNOT be accommodated in

any fairgrounds buildings.

3. The storage department does NOT provide any in/out storage. Your unit, once stored, is

considered to be in dead storage. There are significant charges if a unit has to be removed

before the scheduled move-out date.

4. Vehicles are stored on assigned dates in the fall and are removed from storage on assigned dates

in the spring. All removal dates are scheduled in late March or early April. Removal dates are

assigned in order to limit the moving of your vehicle. If you are unable to keep your removal

appointment, we will charge $25 for each additional day we store your unit.

5. For customers who wish to check on their stored vehicle, there will be a $10 per one-half hour

entry fee charged to gain entrance to the area where the unit is stored. Entry appointments must

be made 48 hours in advance. These appointments are not for removing vehicles.

6. When storing a motorized vehicle such as a car, motor home, truck, etc., you are required to

provide a complete set of keys for the vehicle to the State Fair storage department. No units may

be stored on blocks, nor may tires be removed or radiator antifreeze be drained from the unit

placed in storage. All units must be movable, and batteries may not be removed from any car, truck,

motor home, etc.

7. Boat motors should be positioned so that there is enough clearance while moving the unit in and

out of storage.

8. The storage department must have a phone number on file where you can be reached in case of an

emergency.

9. The storage department reserves the right to place units where the department deems most

appropriate.

10. All storage locations are unheated; therefore, your unit must be winterized.

11. It is the customer’s responsibility to carry insurance on the stored unit. The Society (State Fair)

assumes no responsibility for any loss, damage, vandalism, destruction, security or protection of

property which is placed in storage.

12. All units will be measured from “tip to tip” including the tongue on trailers. This measurement may

not agree with your title card.

13. The storage department recommends that you cover your vehicle.

Other information

Removal postcards are mailed the first week of February.

Please keep this information for future reference!
