State Fair Finds and Favorites



Published:

"Minnesota State Fair," Michael Birawer


More hidden gems, memories, and reasons why our state fair is the greatest get-together of them all

A SURPRISE BONUS FOR THE MOST LOYAL OF FAIR-GOERS


As dedicated state fair lovers, you already know about the must-see event that takes place all day every day inside the Dairy Building’s giant glass refrigerator, AKA Linda Christensen's domain. From that rotating platform of artistry, Christensen has carved, chipped, sculpted, and smoothed 43,200 pounds of butter into the eerily lifelike busts of 480 Princess Kay and Princess Kay finalists over the past 40 years. That’s right: 40 years, 12 princesses a year, one 90-pound block of buttery goodness per girl. To celebrate Christensen, be at the Dairy Building at 9 a.m. on Thursday, August 25, grab some free milk and a butter cookie, and raise a glass to the best butter-bust sculptor in the land.

PLUS: Got an iPhone? Download the Minnesota State Fair app from their website (mnstatefair.org). New this year, it includes a complete schedule of events, food and merchandise finders, and a handy dandy map.

EVEN MORE HIDDEN FAIR TREASURES


Christmas trees in August? Yep, the prettiest pines in the state can be found on the west side of the agriculture-horticulture building.

Only a crazy person would wear wool to the fair, right? Not according to the 4-H kids competing in the Lamb Lead. There, they show off their best wool duds—on their prize animals and themselves.

In the frantic equine entertainment known as the Trailer Races,  horse owners unload their steeds and race around the track—then get the horses loaded back up, fast as they can.

Seed expert Bert Enestvedt knows more about the State Fair than the folks who run it. Swing by his legendary booth, ask about “his” soybean (the U named one after him in 1991), and have him direct you to your next destination.

More from our favorite Minnesotans


GARRISON KEILLOR


The double Ferris wheel was a big rite of passage for me as a young boy; it was the last thing I would do every year. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to introduce my daughter to it. When she was 8 years old or so, I decided to take her. She was a little nervous at first. When we got on, this ride that had been so familiar to me now became terrifying, like something out of a horror movie. I’d never had bad thoughts when I was on it alone, but with her sitting next to me it became something evil—I imagined we were about to crash the entire time. I’ve not ridden it for about six years now. But I miss it.

Some things I always do: eat cheese curds (they’re the best in the food building), visit the chicken barn, ride the Sky Ride and giant slide with my daughter, eat a honey-ice cream sundae from the horticulture building, get tacos from the place by the Coliseum, and eat corn on the cob. And don’t forget the requisite bratwurst—up around the horse barn is where I always get my one brat.

I saw Dolly Parton when I was young. It was a package show that included Jerry Reed and other country acts. She had just broken up with Porter Wagoner and she was so great. I remember loving her—she’s such a natural. And she wasn’t making bosom jokes back then, she was just singing.

One year, a big gust of wind came up during the show and sent the scripts flying all over. That was fun. The stagehands, who are usually very placid, suddenly leaped to action.

I get to sing duets with a lot of beautiful women—of course, I arrange it that way. I produce the show, so I always provide myself with these wonderful moments. During intermission, I’ll walk through the audience and sing with them while we all stand together in the dark on the pavement amid rows and rows of chairs. “America the Beautiful,” “My Country ’Tis of Thee,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “I Saw Her Standing There”—they love singing the high falsetto note in that one.
 

KEVIN KLING


My dad loved machinery hill; he was a farm implement salesman for years. We rarely got off the hill. I remember one year, as we were walking to the car, I noticed Dad’s back was grass stained from crawling under all the machinery. It was a rush to see him get that excited about something.

Mary and my circuit: Ye Old Mill, crop art, animal barns (horses especially), and the art building. To eat: cheese curds, corn, a malt from the dairy barn, corn dog(s), and all the milk I can drink. We also have our treasure hunt: who can spot the first "I’m with stupid" t-shirt or bottle of Pepto Bismol…we have a whole list.

I miss the carnival shows and dunking clown. Neither could be considered “family” entertainment, but that seedy side of carny life always gave me a tingle that only wrongness can supply.
 

MARK SEELEY


Gary Eichten and I have opened the state fair now for 14 years; we do a Minnesota weather quiz. It’s a lot of fun and there’s always a good opening-day crowd. We’ve been lucky that over the years, it’s only rained once. It’s embarrassing for the weatherman to get caught without an umbrella.

There’s one thing I never fail to get at the fair; a family tradition. We always park at the Commonwealth entry on the western end, and no matter how tired we are, how much we’ve eaten, or how miserable we feel, we always stop at the cream-puff booth just before the exit. It’s the cru de gras of the fair; the only way to finish the day.
 

SENATOR AL FRANKEN


As I got older, one of my favorite things was visiting Wellstone at his booth. It was a good time hanging out with Paul—in 1996 and 2002 especially. That’s after I’d been doing SNL and people knew me. It was just a nice relaxed way to hang out with him.

I always liked the all-you-can-drink milk. I drank an incredible amount of milk as a child, which I think explains my build a little bit. Now it’s corn. Since I’m at the fair almost every day, and I get corn every day, at a certain point I’ve had a lot of corn. I used to stop eating it for a while after the fair, but then it’s suddenly the middle of September and there’s no more corn. And I think, “Why did I do that?” I won’t make that mistake again.

I’ve found that there are two ways for Princess Kay to go about dealing with her butter bust. One is to melt it down and have a corn feed. But I always tell them to freeze it. That way, I tell them, your grandchildren can see what their grandma looked like as Princess Kay—in butter.
 

MARK WHEAT


My first time at the fair was in 1992. As an Englishman, the size of the fair was mind-boggling—it overwhelmed me. I couldn’t believe the fairgrounds were permanent, either.

I think the most fun thing for me is people stumbling across us who would never find us otherwise; people who never expected to like us are sitting there, eating their fries, and going, “Oh, I like you. You’re doing neat stuff.”
 

MICHAEL BIRAWER


I remember when I was 7 or 8, my dad wanted to take my brothers and me inside the haunted house. As we approached the front door and the fake steam kept rising from the grass, an immediate sense of terror swept over me, and I started screaming and crying, “Don’t make me go inside!” I felt my dad’s big rough hand grasp mine and he walked me back to my mom. Afterward, I had to deal with endless teasing from my brothers.

Every year is usually the same for me. First I hit up the cheese-on-a-stick stand. Then I head to the beer garden for a Summit. I usually make it to the Miracle of Birth barn, and then stop over to see the seed art. After that, go to Sweet Martha’s for a bucket of chocolate-chip cookies. And then I head out the gate rubbing my full belly with at satisfied look on my face. Then I try to find where I parked.
 

CATHY WURZER


My Grandma Wurzer took me to the fair as a kid. Grandpa dropped us off at the main gate; he hated the crowds. We’d stroll through the fair, making special stops to watch demonstrations of household stuff beneath the Grandstand. Lunch was usually at one of the church diners. And no trip was complete without a visit to the Home Activities building, which was a major bore for me, but Grandma loved seeing the sewing projects and the array of canned pickles, jams, and jellies.
 

Grandma loved going to see the freak shows at the Midway. One time, she had her weight and age guessed by a carnival worker. She was miffed when he was spot-on!
 

SENATOR AMY KLOBUCHAR


After my senior year of high school, two days before leaving for college, I went to the fair with my best friend. I ate one of those frozen chocolate-covered bananas on a stick and I chipped my tooth. I had to have emergency surgery.

Now I go to the fair on opening day and have to eat wild food. Peach-glazed pork cheeks—that’s what I had to eat at 6 in the morning last year. Even though I might not feel like it, I eat whatever is new as soon as I get there to show my fair spirit.

My family and I always go to machinery hill—it’s something I grew up with. We also visit the Miracle of Birth barn, Ye Olde Mill, the seed art and honey displays, the DNR fish pond, eat Tom Thumb donuts, see the biggest hog, and always, always see Princess Kay’s butter bust.
