MINNESOTA STATE FAIR
More delicious options than one could ever hope to taste in 12 days.
While it’s not technically a “food festival,” you may as well consider it one. Amongst the hubbub of concerts, rides and people-watching, you’ll find a list of foods so long you could spend all week eating. Each year Minnesotans anticipate the unveiling of new food items, from SPAM sushi to Paneer on a Spear—we have an affinity for food-on-a-stick. But whatever you do, don’t forget a bucket of Sweet Martha’s chocolate chip cookies and a glass of milk.
When: Last week-and-a-half of August through Labor Day
