Minnesota State Fair, Boozy BerriesThe Minnesota State Fair is scheduled August 22 through Labor Day (September 2, 2019).

Held at the fairgrounds, 1265 Snelling Avenue North, St. Paul, Minnesota, it’ll feature all the usual suspects, including carnival rides, livestock, horticultural exhibits, and entertainment.

But what Road Trips Foodies are looking for is more specific: food. Especially unusual offerings. Here are some of the tasty goodies promised:

Cuban Fusion Fajita
Carnitas-style roast pork, deli-sliced ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickles and Juanita’s Fajitas’ signature mustard folded into a flour tortilla.

Bite-sized funnel cake pieces infused with a blend of Parmesan, Romano and mozzarella cheeses, deep-fried and finished with a sprinkle of sharp cheddar and chives, and served with homemade Sriracha aioli dipping sauce. Ranch or garlic butter dipping sauce will also be available.

Deep-Fried Dilly Dog
Pickle stuffed with bratwurst, dipped in batter and deep-fried.

Fried Tacos On-A-Stick
Two stuffed tacos – one filled with green chorizo and potatoes and one filled with a vegetarian black bean and corn mix – deep-fried, topped with crumbled cheese and a drizzle of guacamole salsa and served on-a-stick.

Grilled Sota Sandwich
Cinnamon nut butter and Minnesota blueberry marmalade served warm on Irish soda bread. Gluten-free and dairy-free.

No Bologna Coney
Italian mortadella pork sausage flavored with pistachios and Mancini’s pepper blend, served on a buttered and toasted split-top bun, and topped with mild muffuletta olive and pepper salad.
