If you’re going to the Minnesota State Fair you are going to spend a lot of money. There’s really no way to avoid it, but there is an easy way to save some cash.  Get yourself a Blue-Ribbon Bargain Book before you head to the fair. The Blue-Ribbon Bargain Book features 150 coupons and will help you save on food, merchandise, and attractions. And, it’s good for all 12 days of the fair!

Some of the deals include $2 off one super-sized bag of mini donuts, $2.50 off one large serving of shaved ice, $6 off two-foot-long corndogs, $3 off one medium-size serving of skin-on fresh-cut French fries, and 2 tickets off one ride on Alpine Bobs, the Tornado, or Kamikaze at the Mighty Midway. See all of the coupons here.

Blue-Ribbon Bargain Books can be purchased wherever pre-fair discount admission tickets are sold including the Cub Food Store in Rochester and most other Cubs. During the fair, books can be purchased on the fairgrounds. Learn more here.
