Editorial review from Citysearch 8/30/2014

The Minnesota State Fair is great! However - LuLu's new restaurant at the state fair - beware the lobster claws on a stick they are extremely over breaded, over cooked, tough, flavorless, and absolutely swimming in grease. At $9.00 they're also overpriced and you're likely wasting your money. The steak tacos - well there is steak (or prime rib I can't remember for sure) but nothing else other than the shell. Good flavor, but at $5.00 - you'll get better value elsewhere. more

what everybody waits for in the summer 11/22/2005

Thsi is the thing I look forward to towards the end of Summer. The food, the people its all good. Tickets to get in are only 5 bucks i think. tickets for rides are pretty expensive. Some of the food is pretty high priced also. Sweet martha's cookies, fresh fries, sheese curds, etc. Everythings tasty and delicious. the exhibit halls and buildings are pretty intresting too. There's one ride that stands above all, the skyscraper which is $25 but looks amazing. more

Great fun for all 11/9/2005

It's a great time for everyone! No matter what your age there is something for you to do and see. Many events going on , entertainment at the grandstand gets big names. Rides for all ages. All kinds of food on a stick and more. Sweet Martha's cookies are a favorite for all. Exhibits in all the building and many thing to buy. The only bad thing is the crowds if you go on the weekends or evenings. You can take the bus from different shopping centers around. Which we always do it is so easy drop you off right in front of gates. more

The great Minnesota get together 11/8/2005

A huge state fair with lots to see. They have tons of food--lots of it on a stick. The malts at the dairy building are great as is the corn on the cob. They have lots of tractors, agriculture and other things to see. They have rides for adults and kids and many barns with animals. They also have a building where baby animals are born throughout the fair. Runs end of Aug through labor day. Go early so its not so dirty. more

It's the fair!!! 11/5/2005

It's the great Minnesota Get Together! What more needs to be said. This is one activity that we just can't let pass. Besides the food and rides, there is so much more. You get to see many great items for sale, there are a lot of educational exhibits. And who can go to the fair and not go see the horses, pigs and cows. Yes, the fair is pricey--but you can't celebrate the end of summer without it. more

Minnesota food fair 11/4/2005

The minnesota state fair can be called as minnesota food fair as there are lots of different types of food stalls and for me i loved the australian battered potatoes the best.The fair i very crowded on weekends .Lots of free items are given at different stalls.Kids find the rides and farms interesting.The one place where all types of age group can enjoy.Everything is bit costly but worth visiting. PROS: Great crowdy place CONS: Everything is expensive more

My favorite thing to do! 10/12/2005

I LOVE THE FAIR! Being from California, we did not have ANYTHING like this! I have lived here 11 years and have gone every year at least once. I can't imagine I will ever miss a year! (I even went when I was in labor and having 5 minute contractions!) (That wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done). They have all the food in the world you could ever want! They also have all the gadgets and gizmos for you to buy! Like infomericals? You can get anything you want here and hear the sales pitch live! My favorite food items and must haves are: Corn on the cob (sounds silly, but it is ABSOLUTELY the best corn you will ever have in your entire life!); Sweet Martha's cookies (mmmmmm); the fresh made french fries; and my husband would say Pronto pups! The grandstand is my favorite building to visit because I love all of the stuff! Prepare to spend lots of time and money at the fair, but it is SO WORTH IT ALL! I wish it came more often! more

awesome 9/10/2005

The MN state fair is really cool. Make sure to bring lots of money however. The food is simply amazing. From alligator, cotton candy, anything you can think of on a stick.... There are also neat rides. Bring comfy shoes!!!! You'll regret it if you don't. There's so much to see and not enough time for it all. Not my idea of bringing the young ones in. Have to keep an extra eye on the little ones. Tons of people. But fun never the less. more

Deep Fried Fun on a Stick! 7/5/2005

Ever had a deep fried candy bar? What about a pork chop on a stick? Walleye on a stick? Cheesecake on a stick? You can even get your veggies -- deep fried on a stick! The Minnesota State Fair is more than just food, food, and more food. There are tons of rides for adults and little kids. Games galore. All kinds of concerts and shows, some that cost extra, and some that come with the price of admission to the fair. Then you have all the exhibits -- the agriculture, the animals, and the award-winning pies and quilts. There is something for everybody there, and it's just not summer unless you go to the state fair. See you there! Oh, and don't forget to try the deep-fried corn on the cob on a stick! more
