I LOVE the MN State Fair - the people are 'Minnesota Nice', it's clean, the entertainment is great, any food you want on a stick, cheese curds are fabulous and if you haven't tried them you should! They have everything from farm and outdoor equipment to inside tools, clothes and housewares!! It's a great, relaxing time with a lot of people yet areas that aren't crowded and the BEST fair food!
Best State Fair Food - 2009
Corn on the cob
You've waited all summer for this all-day gorging on the delectable treats and greasy goodness of the Minnesota State Fair: cheese curds, mini donuts, turkey legs the size of your head. But let's face it, there's only so much artery-clogging junk you can eat, and after a while you're going to want something more wholesome, a summer classic that will refresh your palate and make you feel good inside: sweet corn on the cob. Roasted in the husk, the corn is shucked and dunked in a luscious vat of butter. Sprinkle on a little salt and you've got the best treat on Earth. And something truly Minnesotan. We're the second-largest corn-producing state the nation, and you'll be one of 170,000 people to chow on these cobs at the Fair.
