The Minnesota State fair is an event you cannot miss. Watch for special deals and special days for great savings. You save a lot with advanced planning. It's a summer event our family never misses. Plan a whole day from early morning into night to get the whole experience.

There's so much to see and do at the MN State Fair that there's certainly something for everyone. You can't do it all in one day, so I always go at least twice. And if you like food, this is the place for you! You can eat anything and everything especially if it's on a stick. Once you've been there you'll be a fair fan for life!

While not annual attendees we do try to make it to the state fair at least every other year. We love walking the barns; talking to the 4Hers and yes, avoiding the pitfalls! Add some good old fashioned deep fried anything on a stick and you have a summer day that tops all others! Enjoy the fair - go more than once and you won't be disappointed. Don't forget to take in the Midway too!

If you like fairs, you have to do this one. Fair grounds are huge, there are plenty of shows during the day at various locations. The barns are filled with animals of all kinds. But of course, the star attraction is the food, nothing healthy but who cares?

Plan on spending a full day.
