Fuel Fun with Summer Food Festivals

Valleyfair

Valleyfair is the Upper Midwest's largest amusement park, offering endless fun and thrills with world-class rides, attractions and live entertainment.

At Valleyfair, use your Season Pass to experience delicious food options all summer long!

Hot Dish and Hops

Kicking off the flavorful summer, Valleyfair is bringing two of Minnesota’s favorites together for Hopdish and Hops, a celebration of Minnesota cuisine! Features include hotdish recipes that would make your Grandma proud and some of the best local craft beers. Join us May 26 – 29 and June 2 – 3 to experience all your favorites, like the Chicken Wild Rice or the classic Tator Tot hot dish!

Plus, in honor of this year’s new ride, North Star, Shakopee-based Badger Hill Brewing Company has created a new, exclusive North Star brew. In between food and drink tastings, enjoy local music, bingo games, a special meat raffle and a loon-calling contest live on the Gazebo stage!

Soon to follow will be Valleyfair’s Food Truck Festival, June 17 – 18! Enjoy all the best and most interesting food options from local food trucks. Each week will have a different theme and atmosphere, so come back to experience it all!

Park Food Offerings

Valleyfair also offers tasty treats throughout the park, all summer long! Crafted by our Culinary Manager & Chef, Luis Carrillo, the park catering and special event menus are as dynamic and thrilling as the park itself.

A native of Mexico, Luis has honed his culinary craft with stays at many well-known eateries across the US. Locally, Luis has held various chef positions at some of the Twin Cities top dining destinations, such as Prima and Blue Plate Restaurants Highland Grill, Longfellow and The Lowry.

Luis’ passion and talent as a chef provides a taste of Valleyfair that will have you coming back for seconds! Follow him on Twitter @ChefLCarrillo.

Plus, when you purchase a 2017 Valleyfair Season Pass, you can add the All Season Dining plan! For one low price, enjoy lunch and dinner during every visit. Give your Season Pass + Dining Plan a workout at one (or all) of these delicious locations: Chicken Shack, Beach Bites, Chickie's & Pete's or Sidewinder Burrito. And be sure to top it off with one of our many desserts, including funnel cakes, ice cream treats, and more!

The best way to experience Valleyfair’s food, fun and more is with a 2017 Gold Season Pass! Season Pass holders enjoy unlimited visits all season long – including Soak City Waterpark and ValleySCARE – free parking, in-park discounts and exclusive offers and events. For more reasons to enjoy a season pass this year, check out our full list here.
