Fair Food Festival Helps Those Craving Fair Food and Outdoor Family Events

If you’ve missed delicious fair food and sweet treats, the Dodge County Fairgrounds is offering a new series of events this year. Bring the whole family to Beaver Dam for the Fair Food Festival, which will feature delicious sweet treats, tasty fried fair food and an assortment of food carts. Events are scheduled rain or shine for April 24, May 8, June 5, July 17, September 4 and October 2. Attendees may arrive for lunch or dinner anytime between 11:00 am and 8:00 pm to enjoy fresh, hot fair food and refreshing treats.

Attendees will enjoy FREE admission and plenty of free parking. A variety of new vendors will be showcased each month. Picnic tables and shelters will be available for relaxing and listening to music outdoors while enjoying your favorite carnival foods. However, attendees should feel free to bring their own lawn chairs to enjoy a snow cone or refreshing lemonade under the many shade trees.

Foodies will enjoy the aroma of tasty treats from a variety of vendors, offering items like gourmet soft pretzels, freshly-popped kettle corn, shaved ice, delicious grilled cheese sandwiches and blooming onion petals.

Funds raised from these events will help support the non-profit Fair Association and the maintenance of the Dodge County Fairgrounds. But your business will also support many struggling, local food vendors, who have experienced hardships during the pandemic.

Other delicious options may include fresh-squeezed lemonade, warm, fresh donuts, loaded nachos, hot dogs and local beverage vendors. Food carts and vendors offering these items or who interested in offering similar items at the Fair Food Festival should reach out to Ms. Barb Mullin at [email protected] or 920-885-3586. Cash or check payment will be accepted prior to April 10th. Payment may be sent to: Dodge County Fair Association, P.O. Box 654, Beaver Dam, WI 53916.

Food vendors will enjoy high voltage direct electricity, water, restrooms and garbage receptacles and service with the $75 monthly reservation fee. Vendors may secure space at all six events for only $400.

In August, Wisconsinites should also plan to enjoy fresh, fair food at the Dodge County Fair. The 2021 Dodge County Fair will return to Beaver Dam on August 18-22, with a variety of carnival food, the midway and family-friendly entertainment in a safe and healthy outdoor atmosphere.
