Plenty of healthy options can be found at the Fair, but just like an old friend you visit every summer, there’s the “tried-and-true” favorites, such as Country Fair Cinnamon Rolls, Tasti-Chips, Australian Battered Potatoes, Gingerbread House and Rose’s Mexican Food, to name just a few of the more than 100 food locations across the entire Fairgrounds!
Spicy is also the go-to at this year’s Fair. Tasti- Burger’s Hatter’s Mad Mashup Burger bring the sriracha spice to the forefront, along with a sampling of bourbon sauce to this year’s signature burger (burger patty, smoked bratwurst, caramelized bacon with pecans, chili sriracha mayo, bourbon sauce, lettuce, tomato, cheese and topped with chips or fries on a pretzel bun). Grinder’s and their Angry Chicken Sandwich (spicy chicken sandwich, pastrami, chipotle mayo, cheese, jalapeño, pepperoncini and spicy mustard) are sure to make for a few watery eyes.

Signature cocktails also get into the mix this year for those 21 and older. Have a “Completely Bonkers Tea Time” Happy Hour, featuring tea-based craft cocktails, on weekdays from 4-6pm at Sprigs and Spirits in the Flower and Garden Show. The Drink Me Bar in the “Mad About The Fair” Exhibit will serve up a “Topsy Turvy” cocktail in a wildy whacky glowing glass. The Wine Garden Bar, also in the Flower and Garden Show, and 17 Hands Restaurant & Cantina in the Paddock, will serve up the best of the award winners from the 2016 The Toast of the Coast Wine Competition.
Regardless of the type of food you choose -- between the more than 1,000 items on the food vendors’ collective menus – eating your way through this year’s Fair is your summertime rite of passage!
