The time has almost come - the Minnesota State Fair is just around the corner!

Sadly, the Minnesota State Fair was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic so I think everyone is even more excited than usual to hit the big event. While they got creative and hosted a drive-thru event in the interim, there just really isn't anything quite like experiencing the fair in person.

Thankfully, it is officially on for this year and it is time to start preparing and make a list of what we are going to be eating. (Hint: the answer is everything!)

It will likely to be a very busy year for the fair and since it's been awhile since we've been in person, I thought it would be a good idea to refresh our memory on what is and isn't allowed on fairgrounds, along with a few tips on what to bring to make your experience the best.

Take a look at this list below and start getting ready for one of the best events of the summer!

By the way - the Minnesota State Fair kicks off on August 26th and continues through September 6th. As always, there will be food, drinks, people watching and of course, concerts.
