In 2016, Minnesota Royal celebrates its 100th anniversary on the St. Paul campus. Begun in 1916 as Ag Royal, the week-long event is held each spring to celebrate agriculture and what it contributes to the community.
Join us for our livestock showmanship contest on Saturday April 16 (free) or to watch the Johnny Holm band perform Thursday April 14 (tickets are 20$). Throughout the week, student groups on the St. Paul campus will also vie for bragging rights as they participate in good-natured competitions, like animal calling, a milkmaid and lip-sync contest, the Ag Olympics, the Royal Run, skits, showmanship and more.
Everyone's welcome to join in this week of student-run fun! Stay updated on Minnesota Royal by liking the Minnesota Royal Facebook page.
