If you were to ask me what my absolute favorite part of the summer is, without a doubt my answer would be the Indiana State Fair. It’s my one can’t-miss event every year. My husband and I have been going together since we started dating (over ten years ago!), and we make sure to go at least once every August.

Our newest family tradition is to go with my friend Amy and her family. We’ve been going together since before I had children, and it’s so much fun to go back over our old fair photos and see how much our kids have grown. Our boys have grown up together at the fair.

This year at the fair, it’s the year of Dairy Cows! There’s also a really fun activity this year called the Indiana’s Family of Farmers Recipe Trail. Those who follow the trail will win a prize AND help feed the hungry. IFOF and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) are donating one pound of food to Indiana food banks for each person who finishes the trail. Their goal is to have 3,000 people complete the trail and donate 3,000 pounds of food.

How do you follow the IFOF Recipe Trail? Just collect the eight recipe cards from various locations around the fairgrounds and bring them to the Family of Farmers booth in the DuPont Food Pavilion. There you will receive your ninth recipie card, a special prize, and an entry into the daily dairy giveaway. Grand prize is a Frigidaire Chest Freezer! The IFOF booth is featuring awesome food demonstrations daily, so be sure to stop by and check it out. A map to the Recipe Trail can be found on the Indiana Family of Farmers website.

As an official Indiana’s Family of Farmers Ambassador, I am excited to offer one lucky reader TWO FREE STATE FAIR TICKETS and TWO SETS OF DAIRY BAR COUPONS. That  means you could spend an evening at the State Fair, with dinner and dessert, FOR FREE – courtesy of the Indiana Family of Farmers.

Use any or all of the options below to enter the giveaway. The more ways you enter, the greater your chances! The contest ends August 1st at 12:01 a.m. Winners will be notified by email. Best of luck to you all, and enjoy the fair this year! I know we will!
