The World's Fair, otherwise known as EXPO 2027 could be held in Minnesota.  At first I was thinking that it was just this giant fair... well not exactly.  The renderings have been unveiled via Bring Me the News, and WOW!  It's super futuristic.

Bloomington, Minnesota is in the running up against four other places in the world.

  • Phuket, Thailand
  • Belgrade, Serbia
  • Malaga, Spain
  • San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina 
If the United States would win this bid, it would be the first time in 43 years that it would be held here. The last one was in 1984 and was held in New Orleans.

What exactly is EXPO 2027 or The World's Fair?

Whoever ends up hosting this event will have a significant economic advance.  This includes over 30,000 jobs created, the estimate is that there would be at least $100+ visitor tax generated per visitor on average.  According to EXPO2027 website, the world's fair would have an estimated economic impact of 2 billion dollars.

This could be huge for Minnesota. So many people from all over the world coming to the expo, dining, staying in hotels, and exploring other parts of Minnesota, and the rest of the U.S. while they are here.  The expo generally goes on for about 3 months.

A decision on where the World's Fair expo will be held is expected to be made by June of 2023.
