With the State Fair canceled, Minnesotans are looking for places to get their hands on some of their favorite fair foods. 

While food stands serving cheese curds, pronto pups and more have been popping up all around the state (find out where here), other State Fair staples, like Chicken in a Waffle Cone and Bacon Stuffed Tots, haven't been available yet. 

But you won't have to wait much longer. All the Blue Plate Restaurants in the Twin Cities – The Lowry, The Freehouse, Edina Grill, Longfellow Grill, The Groveland Tap, 3 Squares and Highland Grill – will serve up some of the most popular dishes from the State Fair's The Blue Barn on Saturday, July 4, according to The Blue Barn Facebook page

The menu, below, will be available for dine-in and take away, the page notes.
