Katie's Top 4 Best Foods at the State Fair by Katie Stiles
Deep Fried Pickles
Definitely the BEST FOOD OF ALL TIME!!! Got to have it!!
Mouse Cheese Curds
The stand in the food building....by far the best cheese curds :D
They actually make the pretzels right in front of you!! AMAZINGLY GOOD!!! they are between the poultry/sheep barn and the horse barn.
A classic state fair food, but still the best!! can't go wrong!! :D

Deep Fried Cheese Curds
Salty, crispy, and quite possibly the world's most perfect food!
The color, the smell, and the taste. Thank heavens for the person who decided to make it a foot long!! For 2 weeks "corn dogs" should be outlawed. :)
Pork Chop on a Stick
I've been buying this seasoning for years. Simply the best!
Bacon on a stick
So is it bad that I have 2-3 of these during day one at the fair?
Keep coming back to the memories by the Nanchi
Ye Old Mill
A must. Our first date at 14 years old was at the State Fair. 40 years later we still have to grab a bag of Tom Thumb donuts and head into the musty, coo, dark tunnel of love!
Sort of a new tradition for us (15 years or so!) Slice of pizza, sitting under the ceiling fans, people watching. A good break in the afternoon.
Fine Arts building
A wonderful venue of great, local art. Always hot and muggy. Keep telling ourselves, "oh, just one more gallery" but end up seeing the entire show. If you haven't found this gem, try it out this year!
Really, any of the 'beer gardens' are a good stop. We love sitting close to the doorway, people watching while having a bit to eat, a cool drink--and watching the ejector seat too! Usually late enough at night to see the grandstand fireworks.
Keeps me comming back every year! by Sara C. Larson
With that many people in one place you can play a game called "find two people with the same shirt." (another reason why I pick a odd shirt to wear every year)
Believe me! I can't help walking around the Sates biggest zoo. (And its next to the midway--which is another ZOO.)
lol The education building is a must! I can't tell you how many times I dig for a pencil and thank the Minnesota Board Of Medical Practices for handing it to me!
Yes, the most fun of them all! The DMV booth can look up your friends or your wrap sheet. That's how I found out my friend had a curfew violation from when he was a teen!
