Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly every festival and fair has been canceled for 2020. The biggest of these casualties is the Minnesota State Fair itself. I am a die-hard fair-goer, and even worked for Todd County 4-H for a few summers helping prep for the county fair. I love fair food and live to try all the new crazy food that comes along with the State Fair every year.

We are looking at a quiet summer with a lot fewer fried snacks which is good for my health, but bad for my foodie soul. If you are like me and are on the hunt for a fair food fix, here are a few options across the state.
