I am from Minnesota so I have my biases. I would like to hear from people who may have attended multiple state fairs. Also, I chose these states because they are most common when googling best state fairs.

- Big Tex greeting patrons at the entrance.
- World wide displays scattered across the park
- The Labor Day Classic and Texas/OU in the Cotton Bowl
- Plenty of live music, entertainment
- The Skyway
- The tallest ferris wheel in North America
- Hundreds of new vehicles on display
- so many fried foods, it could feed people in 8 thrid-world countries AND give them all heart attacks in the process.
- The biggest damn fair in the United States in the shadow of the Dallas skyline.

Of course, I'm going with Texas.

I have to go hometown: Minnesota

The largest state fair by daily attendance and has more food on a stick than you can... shake a stick at.

The Indiana state fair should be on this list.
