Scope out the food lineup before you go

It’s less overwhelming this way. The Minnesota State Fair website has their food vendors and items listed, and even released a “what's new in 2022” so you can be ahead of the curve and strategically eat your way through the fairgrounds. We’ve included a link below so that you can download the new foods map.

Favorites from the VIBE team

Dan Schneider: My favorite thing to do at the fair is to go to the poultry barn. Those fancy chickens are the best! Some of them look like they came straight from a Dr Seuss book.

Laura Bernard: Hands down the twist cones from the Dairy Barn!

Emily Wendt: Go early and head straight for the fried pickles. Tejas beergaritas are another must!

Angela Anderson: For the oaks who are gluten-free, there is an organization that puts out a list of GF foods at the fair. It’s very helpful! 

Steve Anderson: I think the Kettle Corn over by the lumberjack competition area is dynamite :firecracker:

Karin Doyle: Go hungry. Leave feeling sick. Wear good shoes. Try something new each year. Thank your police and fire personnel at the fair.

Lauren Henry: Crab fritters in the north end are :bomb:
