ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s only seven months away, but if you can’t wait that long for the next Minnesota State Fair, you can relive parts of last summer’s fair on the Travel Channel this week.

There’s a show about all of the food at the fair, featuring Sweet Martha’s Cookies, hot dish on-a-stick and chocolate-covered bacon.

You can see that 7 p.m. Wednesday. It will also air again at 2 a.m. Thursday and at 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28.

There’s also another show on the Travel Channel next week about competitions at the Minnesota State Fair. That show will include the butter sculptures and the lumberjack show. It will air at 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28.

If you’re not sure what channel the Travel Channel is in your home, you’ll have to check with your local cable or satellite provider.

    The state fair needs to have a real and competitive application process. Just because a vendor was there last year, they should not get preferential treatment. In fact they should go to the back of the line. Give more people a chance to use the peoples asset…the state fair.

    I think the state fair could stand to move north and surround the grandstands so they can spread out the food vendors and allow more in, anyone that has been there can tell u walking around those streets is chaos, its more of and old granny shuffle

    Damn we are famous now! The travel channel? You don’t say…

    Last year the Extreme Makeover crew (that ambushes people that are dressed really bad or outdated) came to the MN State Fair too and ambushed a few people and put them on the show. For those of us that have been to the MSF…. it’s like shooting fish in a barrel for the Extreme Makeover crew.

    “They” could stand to use more of their land space. The primary congested areas need to be given more open space as it’s not fun at all to be crushed in those crowds. The numbers show people will attend no matter how crushed they are but they could really rethink and better utilize all that land.
