Creative Arts Building
I am a knitter, sewer and cross-stitcher. Since this is right inside the main entrance, we go here first and get it over with for my poor husband. ;)
Baby farm animals--what else is there?
DNR Fish Pond
A great place to dream about The Big One That Got Away and learn about conservation of species and land.
Animal Exhibit Barns
We especially love going through the horse, swine, sheep and cow barns, and seeing the state's biggest pig(s). Just watch your step...

Ice Cream in the Dairy Building
Ya just gotta hit the Dairy Building! The lines actually move fast as you near the counter for your choice of a Sundae or Malt or Shake .... Well worth the effort! PLUS, you get to see the Princess Kay butter sculptures!
Tom Thumb Mini-Donuts
As an early morning fair arriver (is that a word?) I need to start my MN State Fair experience with an over abundance of sugar!
Can't help myself. Just have to have 'em!
Sweet Martha's Cookies
This is my "end-of-the-day" treat. I'm totally not hungry by the end of my day, so I buy a bucket (you really can't go any smaller!) of cookies. I'll have 1 or 2 before I even leave the stand; a handful for the ride home and the rest for my day-after-the-Stair-Fair letdown!
