After a day of Morning Sessions, Servant Events, Sessions, and Service Immersions, we know that it can be a challenge to coordinate dinner for your youth group before heading to an evening Mass Event. That’s why we’re excited to offer some delicious food options to ease your dinnertime burden!
The State fair in Minnesota is called “The Great Minnesota get-together” and is the second largest state fair in the country. State Fair Food at the Commons will offer you three meal options, each with a bit of State Fair flair! These meals will be served at The Commons, an urban park located just steps away from U.S. Bank Stadium. In order to ensure as speedy, efficient, and convenient an experience as possible, and to help you make it to the Mass Events in time, these meals will be available for pre-order only. No on-site ticket sales will be available. Deadline to purchase tickets is June 24.
DATES: State Fair Food at the Commons will be available on Thursday, July 11; Friday, July 12; Saturday, July 13; and Sunday, July 14, 5:00-7:30 each night.
