The Minnesota State Fair announced that its extremely-popular Food Parade will return to the State Fairgrounds October 1 – 4 and 8 – 11, 2020.
Participants will be able to purchase an arrival time each hour between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. Like the original Food Parade, tickets are $20 per vehicle with an additional $5 in fees. Each vehicle can have up to five people inside (ages 4 and under are not counted).
The October tickets are done via a ticket lottery, which is now open. Click here to sign up for your chance to go. The ticket lottery is open until Thursday, September 17 at noon.

There is a way to purchase a ticket. You can become a Friend of the Fair, which benefits the Minnesota State Fair Foundation. Learn more here.
The second round of the Food Parade includes some new vendors, including Minneapple Pie, who serves deep-fried apple pies. You can also purchase deep-fried pickles. Overall, the entire menu will have flavors of fall.
