Our second annual Minnesota Eats event starts this weekend! Join us on weekends, July 13 – August 4, to relish in the most quirky, delicious, and uniquely Minnesotan food combinations you can possibly imagine. Minnesota Eats will feature four specialty food booths serving up everything from the infamous Juicy Lucy to creamy S’more Nachos! To make it even better, each signature dish can be paired with a locally brewed beer. Enjoy the sunny, summer weather and friendly company as you challenge each other in yard games and competitions. With so much more to unfold when it comes to MN Eats, we decided to give you a special preview of every awesome thing this event has to offer.
