My favorite places at the Fair by Deanna Thompson

Category: Attractions & Exhibits

  1. Creative Activities Building
    I love seeing what people have made..both in food and clothes and everything. A tradition for many years
  2. Grandstand Shows
    I have always gone to at least one Grandstand show for the over 40 years I have been coming to the State Fair. Saw Sonny & Cher to Garth Brooks to The Mills Brothers to Carrie Underwood this year!!!
  3. Bandshell Shows
    Again, have seen great acts there and always go every year to at least one show there.
  4. Shopping
    Heritage Square, Grandstand, International Market..lots of shops all over the place. Have gotten lots of fun stuff over the years!

Best ways to rejuvenate at the Fair by Wendy Jones

Category: Attractions & Exhibits

  1. Take in the view during a Sky Glider ride
    You've just escaped the throngs in the Grandstand and are clutching your newly-purchased Chop-o-Matic - you could use a moment to rest and reflect on the majesty of the Fair! Hop on the Sky Glider (across from the roasted corn booth) and take a relaxing trip to the Fair's north end. The birds-eye view of the fairgrounds will inspire you, and you'll be refreshed and ready to take in a K-9 demo at the Pet Center when you hop off.
  2. Sip an iced coffee in the Farmers Union Cafe
    After you've "ooh-ed" and "ahh-ed" at the mouthwatering baked goods and exquisite crafts in the Creative Activities Building, head down the street to the Farmers Union Cafe and order an iced coffee, frappacino, or other refreshing caffeinated beverage. Grab a seat in the cafe, listen to music, watch the crowds pass by, and resolve to be a better person who makes handmade gifts for her friends and cooks all of her food from scratch. "Yes!," you think to yourself, "I WILL enter my zucchini bread next year - blue ribbon, here I come!" Once the initial buzz of caffeine wears off, reality sets in again and you accept your inadequacies. You're ready to head back into the crowds!
  3. Admire great art over a cup of cold cider
    Once you've pushed your way to the front of the crowd to get a good look at Princess Kay of the Milky Way's butter head sculpture, it's time to leave the Dairy Building (formerly Empire Commons) and make a beeline to the Ag-Hort Building for more art appreciation. First, stop in the apple wing of the building and grab a cup of fresh-pressed apple cider, the first of the season. Unlike most art museums, food and beverages are allowed in the Ag-Hort's Crop Art gallery. Grab a spot on the row of benches facing the crop art display and sip your cider while contemplating the varied meanings in this collection of Minnesota masterpieces. Although the crop art is thoroughly modern, it's unlikely that you'll think to yourself, "I could have made that."
  4. Take in a show at the 4-H Building
    There's ample seating at both stages (1st and 2nd floors) in the 4-H Building, and there's an abundance of energy in the kids pounding the floor boards. Have a seat and soak up the enthusiasm of youth. You'll never have that kind of energy again, but it's good to know that Minnesota's kids are full of great ideas and the wherewithal to make them happen. You'll leave the building feeling good about the future, which is how everyone should feel at the Great Minnesota Get-Together!
