State Fair officials on Tuesday announced more than two dozen new food offerings for this year’s Great Minnesota Get-Together.

The new lineup includes a bunless banh mi bowl, a hamburger with a waffle bun and Mexican street corn off-the-cob.

There are plenty of new desserts as well, including a jumbo doughnut sundae, an ice cream sandwich wrapped in a waffle and a smore-inspired funnel cake.

The fair was canceled last year due to the pandemic. But fair officials announced earlier this month that the 12-day event will return on Aug. 26 and run through Labor Day.

Now here's a look at all the new things you can eat this year if you head to the Great Minnesota Get-Back-Together.
