Drinks with cheap refills
In the food building you can buy a soda and keep your cup all day and get refills at a reasonable price... better that getting a new drink all the time.
Buy in Bulk Peanuts and Mixed Berries
In the Coliseum they have nuts and such by the half and full pound, they keep all day and are a great snack while waiting in line for other food:)
ALL you can drink milk
for a buck.... I remember when it was 50 cents and I am only 26

Fluffy Sheep, fish, fire towers, and fireworks! by Steve Gjerdingen
Category:Attractions & Exhibits
The sheep in the sheep barn are so fluffy! I almost wish I could have a sheep for a pet.
There are so many huge fish at the DNR pond. It's amazing!
The fire tower is the only free way to get up high and get a great view of the fair.
Every night there is a free firework show at the fair. You can't beat that.
My stomach maps out my 16 hour day at the fair! by Jayme H
Strawberries and Cream on Machinery Hill
This is a good breakfast item. It's light and great for coating the stomach before bringing on the grease!
Foot Long Hot Dog by the Coliseum or Art Building
I'm not sure what they put in these things to make them taste so good. Then there are those amazing onions. YUM! Plus one is big enough to share with my Mom!
The $1.75 Pizza Slice by the Midway
One of the tastier, cheaper items at the fair that we discovered years ago although back then it started at only $1 a slice!
Sweet Martha's Cookies by the Grand Stand or Arcade
This is a must at the very end of the day as we walk out to our lonely car in the parking lot at midnight. That way the cookies are the freshest they can be when I eat them the next day and reminisce about my day at the best Minnesota Get Together!
Hannah's Four Reasons to Attend the Fair by Hannah
Where else can you get delicious Sweet Martha's cookies, honey ice cream, and hundreds of other delectable goodies?
The Olde Mill
This one-of-a-kind, historic ride is a must for any self-respecting fairgoer.
I LOVE looking at all of the animals at the fair: sheep, pigs, horses, dogs, you name it!
Everyone is so happy to be at the Fair! It's our annual way to say, "We love Minnesota!" I love spending the day with other Minnesotans who love their state.
