There are plenty of other ways to get a taste of State Fair foods leading up to Labor Day. Check out this list of restaurants and businesses where you can find official Fair foods.
official Fair merchandise available to public is typically not the most trendy looking stuff. However, designers did a good job creating face masks, along with a gaiter. You can get a face covering featuring Fairchild, one of the two mascots for the Fair, for $12. They're also selling a three-pack of more simplistic masks for $20. Face coverings are available in adult and youth sizes.
Starting Thursday, August 13, candidates will be on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to get their likeness carved out of a 90 pound block of butter. It's a Minnesota State Fair tradition that draws thousands of onlookers.
