 What food does Fair Management look forward to every year?
John C. Alkire
“There are two things that I look forward to…beerrocks and soft tacos. That is the definition of traditional Fresno Fair food!”
Stacy Rianda
“Most definitely the shrimp ceviche from the Mariscos Stand! I look forward to it all year!”
Lauri King
"I would have to say that my favorite Fair food is the Dirty Fries from the Grinders Stand. It has delicious pulled pork, coleslaw and fries - what could be better? Then for breakfast, snacks and dessert, most definitely a fresh-baked churro from the Churro Zone near Yosemite Station. My record of churros in one day is six!”
