North Dakota State Fair
The North Dakota State Fair is the largest annual public event in North Dakota. Held in Minot on 164 acres, the Fair offers a variety of dairy displays and attractions each year, allowing Midwest Dairy Association to showcase the state's dairy industry. Our Malt Wagon is open every day of the fair from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Midwest Dairy Association sponsors the North Dakota State Dairy show on the final Saturday of the fair, an event that includes the popular Kiddie Calf Show. Educational dairy materials, dairy recipes, dairy trivia and prizes are also available to fairgoers.
North Dakota Dairy Princess
The North Dakota Dairy Princess program is the longest-running one in the United States, initiated in 1946. The princess, who serves as a goodwill ambassador for the state's dairy farmers, makes media appearances, talks with children about the importance of consuming three servings of dairy every day, and visits with consumers in various settings.
