Must haves: corn on the cob, pork chop on a stick, sundae from the dairy building, Sweet Martha's Cookies, pronto pups, deep fried cheese curds.
Concerts at the Grandstand and the Leinie's Free Stage.
Seeing the exhibits in the Agriculture Building. Checking out the new RV's and cars. Going to the U of M booth.
Just walking around among the masses.

Greeting all customers with a smile and the coldest beer on the fair grounds. Don't forget to fresh cooked-to-order burger with fried onions - yummy!
Check out the walleye cakes and dipping sauce - delicious
MALTS, need I say more?
Try them all - but my favorite is Nutella/Banana
The Top 4 Food Stalls You MUST Try by Katie Schmalz
Salem Lutheran Church Dining Hall
The first place that you need to visit is the Salem Lutheran Church dining hall. It has been around for years. Its a great sit down dining location and is one of the few stands to actually offer breakfast. I personally love the Meatball Sundae, a giant meatball on top of mashed potatoes. There is also their special Swedish egg coffee to try.
All You Can Drink Milk Stall
For $1, you can refill your cup of nice cold refeshing milk throughout your entire day at the fair. Chocolate milk is even available! The milk is great with your Sweet Martha Cookies! ;)
Sweet Marthas Cookies
The best cookies in the fair! You must try them. The line may be long but it goes very quickly since there are so many cookie makers. Pair it with your all you can drink milk!
North side of Judson near corner of Judson and Clough. It has yummy sliced potatoes, battered and deep fried then topped with cheese or ranch sauce. It even comes with a little souvenir flag of Australia. You wouldn't expect getting that in Minnesota.
Wouldn't miss by Connie Pfannenstein
There just is no better shake/malt!
A little kick of expresso ON ICE on your 5th or 6th hour of the fair, will give you the kick to stick it out!
Ye Ole Mill
A place of my childhood. If I don't ride, I just stop for a look at a MN State Fair treasure, so full of childhood memories.
..in general. Such great regional displays..and those BIG PUMPKINS!
