Minnesota’s annual State Fair is right around the corner and by the looks of the musical line up and the new foods; it’s going to continue the great tradition that is the Minnesota State Fair. For those that don’t know, Minnesota’s state fair is far from the average; sitting right behind Texas at 3rd on the top 50 Fairs List. Every year you’re sure to find one of your favorite artists performing or a crazy food (usually on a stick) that you’ve never even heard of. This year the Grandstand will be hosting music from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chance The Rapper, Talib Kweli, Tim McGraw, P.O.S, The Chalice and even comedy from the likes of Kevin Nealon & Dennis Miller. If that wasn’t enough, some of the confirmed new foods that will be featured include bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp on a stick, grilled glazed donuts, porketta pig wings, bbq tacos, candied bacon cannolis and Hawaiian Dogs just to name a few. The fair is definitely one of, if not Minnesota’s biggest event and is always a good time for all ages whether you’re there to ride rides, eat, drink or all of the above.
