As the 2017 Great Minnesota Get-Together draws near, Summit Brewing is preparing their special beer for this year's fair. They plan to locally source all of the ingredients for the beer from around the state, including the beer's name. The company is looking for name submissions for this year's beer from the public.
One of the best parts of the Great Minnesota Get-Together is the food. Whether it's fair mainstays like corn dogs, or exotic foods like alligator on a stick, the grub is a high priority for many that visit each year. The 2014 fair, which goes from August 21 to September 2, will feature 28 new food items to accompany many of the classics.
People watching and exploring the Minnesota State Fair is an adventure in itself. Beside the incredible food and rows of booths, there are some funny sights people associate with the Great Minnesota Get-Together. One clever individual decided to take advantage of these sights, making a hilarious bingo game of it.
