You can eat new State Fair foods before the Fair even starts

No comments

It’s not the most publicized, but it’s truly a fun night. And it’ll make your friends jealous.

Every year on the Thursday before the Minnesota State Fair starts, traditional and new Fair food vendors gather in the International Bazaar for an event called Taste of the Fair.

And you can attend.

In addition to the food, event-goers can play Midway games, listen to music by performers playing during the Great Minnesota Get Together. And guess what? There aren’t mile-long lines to try even the most sought after food! I have gone before — it’s a lot of fun.

Tickets to Taste of the Fair are $85 and benefit the Minnesota State Fair Foundation, the group responsible for maintaining and upgrading the buildings and fairgrounds. The 2017 Taste of the Fair is on Thursday, August 17 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. You can purchase tickets online.
