SAINT PAUL, Minn. (August 2021) – With the return of the Minnesota State Fair comes the return of great
dairy traditions, including tasty malts and sundaes, bottomless milk, dairy princesses and butter sculptures.
This year, visitors to the fair have a variety of ways to celebrate all things dairy, including a visit to the Dairy
Goodness Bar to enjoy Midwest Dairy’s sixth “Flavor of the Fair”: “You Betcha Berry” malt or sundae. They can
also make flavor suggestions for next year while watching the 68th Princess Kay of the Milky Way and the nine
finalists have their likenesses carved in butter. This year, longtime butter sculptor Linda Christensen will return
for her 50th and final year of butter sculpting. She is set to sculpt the newly crowned Princess Kay before
passing the job on to her successor, artist and Minnesota native Gerry Kulzer, who will sculpt the remaining
finalists and officially take over the role of resident butter sculptor.  Also not to be missed is the All-You-Can-Drink Milk Stand, owned by
Minnesota’s dairy farm families. A tradition at the fair since 1955, visitors to the All-You-Can-Drink Milk Stand can purchase a
bottomless cup of 2% white or low-fat chocolate milk for just $2. Guests can also join other dairy devotees for the 36th Annual Milk Run 5K early on the first Sunday of the fair.New Flavor of the Fair for 2021:Midwest Dairy is excited to bring back its sixth “Flavor of the Fair” – a
special flavor only available during that year’s state fair. This year’s flavor, “You Betcha Berry,” is a unique and refreshing malt or sundae
with a blend of vanilla ice cream topped with blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
