What part of the Minnesota State Fair will you miss the most? Perhaps it's not the Fair Food that rings your bell; perhaps there's more to your State Fair experience that you look forward to.

For me, I always look forward to the entertainment in the grand stands, as well as the entertainers that are all around the grounds. Some people love shopping...the unique pieces of art...the blown glass.

If you're one of those people who loves to shop at the fair,  there's nothing stopping the State Fair from coming to you.
