State Fair to Return

The Minnesota State Fair will return after staying closed last year due to the pandemic — and those who are making the trip will have 27 new foods to try.The new foods include Asian-inspired fare, new sweet treats, and of course, some deep-fried delicacies. This year’s State Fair will run from Aug. 26 through Labor Day. The fair isn’t requiring masks when it returns this summer, but visitors who aren’t fully vaccinated are encouraged to wear them.
