The Sporkies presented by Journal Sentinel

The Wisconsin State Fair certainly has a reputation for unique and unusual foods, which is why we created our Annual Food Competition, The Sporkies, presented by Journal Sentinel.

Each year eight finalists are selected from dozens of entries, and a panel of celebrity judges choose the recipients of three Golden Spork Awards during the Fair at 11 am on Wednesday, August 8 on the Associated Bank Amphitheater.

Congratulations to the Seventh Annual Sporkies Winners!

Congratulations to our past winners!
