West End Transit Hub at Minnesota State Fairgrounds – site for Dan Patch sculpture.

When you visit the Minnesota Horse Expo this weekend, two questions may cross your mind. The first may be, “Where, exactly, is the sculpture of Dan Patch going to be installed if fundraising efforts are successful?”

The Fairgrounds West End Transit Hub is at the west end of the Grandstand, just up the hill from the intersection of Dan Patch Avenue and Liggett. Appropriately, the site sits on ground where the paddock once stood, and in all likelihood, where Dan Patch himself was harnessed before he raced.

Sixty percent of the Fair’s 1.8 million annual visitors enter through this gate, meaning Dan Patch would be on hand to greet them all.

And where can you see the maquette of Dan Patch, meet sculptor Alexa King, and make a donation for the statue?

The Dan Patch Project will be located in the Coliseum, in booth C 114.

We will have coffee mugs, tshirts and sweatshirts available for purchase.

Tax deductible donations may also be made through our fiscal sponsor, Springboard for the Arts.
