Come early, hungry and ready to graze through the Fair at more than 200 concession locations that offer plenty of delicious favorites, like butter-dripping corn-on-the-cob and steaming hot deep-fried cheese curds. Each year vendors introduce many new foods, and hundreds are available on-a-stick. This year is no different, with NEW items ranging from Cricket Nachos and Deep-Fried Nutella to Ball Park Tots and Cinna Dogs. Yum!
Come hungry and sample a variety of Fair foods available at more than 50 food vendors who offer smaller sizes of your favorite items at reduced prices! Pick up a Crazy Grazin’ brochure at any Fair Information Center presented by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and look for posters displayed at participating vendors.
The Wisconsin State Fair certainly has a reputation for unique and unusual foods and this year was no exception at the Fair’s Sixth Annual Food Competition, The Sporkies, presented by Journal Sentinel. Eight finalists have been selected from 34 entries, and a panel of celebrity judges will chose the recipients of three Golden Spork Awards.
The iconic Original Cream Puff, sold at the Fair since 1924, is the most popular food item among Fairgoers – an average of 350,000 are consumed each year! The delicious cream-filled pastries can be enjoyed individually or in three- or six-packs. The Wisconsin Bakers Association operates the Cream Puff Bakery in the Original Cream Puff Pavilion, two additional conveniently located vending locations in the Fair Park.
