It's called the Great Minnesota Get Together. It's the largest state fair in the US by average daily attendance and second largest by total attendance (after Texas). Residents of the state and region come to the fair to be entertained, exhibit their best livestock, show off their abilities in a variety of fields including art and cooking, learn about new products and services, and enjoy many different types of food—often fried and on a stick. The best people watching of the year.
