  • This was pretty much what you expect a state fair to be. Could've used a little more rodeo and some better posting of event schedules, but was solid overall. Good selection of foods, which is the main reason I attend fairs. They also had some fun competitions like dog distance jumping. Their large even warehouses had a TON of vendors where I bought a few things. The art exhibits and such were a bit underwhelming, but that's at all fairs. This was written after a trip to the spring event.
  • This is the best fair I've ever been to! It's huge. I wish there were more variety. The rides and booths are pretty much the same every year. It will take a few years to see it all, but if you've been coming for 10+ years then it's pretty much all the same. The food prices seem to be getting way to expensive. The concert staff are great! So are the concerts. Be sure to try the taffy bars and the scones.
  • It has been a few years since I last went to the fair, the food is delicious as always, the rides and games are as expected. The line to get in was surprisingly quick (at least without a backpack etc). I found that most of the souvenir shops were all owned by the same company so it was hard to find anything unique for sale(my personal favorite reason for going).
  • There is a ton of stuff to do here for an entire family. Definitely gets you a good workout in due to the size and amount of walking you have to do. There are many many businesses there displaying their goods if you are in the market for some random home improvement items. Make sure to enjoy the rides!
  • Always a favorite. Nostalgia ridden goodness. Grab a scone on your way in or out they are best hot! Get some deep fried insanity from Totally Fried [love those guys] the Oreos are pretty darn good. The big turkey legs are a must for anyone who enjoys delicious succulent turkey. And deep fried butter isn't as bad as it sounds trust me. Check out the jerky stand in the hobby hall best I've ever had!
