With so much awesomeness at the Minnesota State Fair, how can anyone decide who's got the best stuff going on? Well, the State Fair does every year, announcing a 'Best of Fair' list each August.

This year thirteen vendors were selected for the 'Best of' list. I can only imagine that making the list is a big boost for your business for the final four days of the fair.
