I always check out the fabulous live music, unique vendors, and the great variety of ethnic foods.
A trip to the Great Minnesota Get Together isn't complete until you've put a pair of paper Pig Ears on your head and wandered through the livestock barns.
Minnesota's Best Apples
The Horticulture Building is the best place to find out about the enormous variety of Minnesota apples - and you can sample them, too!
Arts & Crafts
Not sure of the name of this building - but I always make sure to check out the home made goods Minnesotans have brought in for judging. Canned goods, baked goods, and beautiful quilts are all on display.

Carmen's (been going my whole life) picks by Carmen Shoberg
The giant slide is a great place to meet family and friends, (because everyone knows where it is) then all take a ride down the slide together - or just watch the kids go down.
Love to see the county kids/people and their livestock. Take the barn tours they are informational and fun and don't take too long.
State Fair Museum
Located in Heritage square, it's a little well kept peek into the Fair's history, learn something new, marvel at all the grandstand acts that have come through, get a load of the costumes and hair do's from the past......
Beer Garden's in a tilt-a-whirl seat
Go sit and relax with a beer or pop and watch the city meet the county - best place to people watch, you have your county folks coming from the barns and the city folks heading for the midway - have a seat be ready to be entertained by some GOOD people watching!
