The Sporkies

The Wisconsin State Fair certainly has a reputation for unique and unusual foods, which is why we created our Annual Food Competition, The Sporkies. Each year eight finalists are selected from several dozen entries, and a panel of celebrity judges choose the recipients of three Golden Spork Awards.

Congratulations to the Fifth Annual Sporkies winners!

Final judging and presentation of the 2017 Golden Spork Awards took place during the Fair on Wednesday, Aug 9 at the Bank Mutual Amphitheater at 11 am.

Kyle Cherek again served as emcee directing our celebrity judges:
