Grandstand shows, live entertainment, food, shopping, agricultural exhibits and competitions, and more! Started as a territorial fair in 1854, it changed its name in 1859 after Minnesota became a state. Always the 12 days leading up to and including Labor Day. Nearly 2 million people attend the event. Held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

Ahh the great sweat together.
There is so much to love about a fair. All of th food and rides. It's a great place to overwhelm your senses and get that...
This year, I journeyed where I have never gone before: I went to the fair TWICE! Once with the whole fam, and ante just with my mom(a foodie, much like me)....
Not enough vegan options :(
I would appreciate more vegan vendors for people with dairy allergies who don't eat meat.
I did find strawberries and cream...
