It’s National Junk Food Day!

We have a confession. We’re food junkies! Happy National Junk Food Day! We’re still drooling over the delicious food that our vendors cooked up for us during the 2019 Big Fresno Fair and we can’t wait to see what they will be creating for 2020! Did you get to try this mouthwatering Oreo Ice Cream Taco from Candy Land? Share with us what foods you’re most excited to try this year!

The Big Fresno Fair Will Be Featured on the Cooking Channel’s “Carnival Eats!”

One thing’s for sure, Fairgoers love to attend the fair to try the quirky yet delicious food on display! Food so quirky that even the Cooking Channel’s, “Carnival Eats” had to come and try! At the 2019 Big Fresno Fair, cast and crew members of Carnival Eats stopped by our Fair for four days to record scenes for their show and of course to try the wacky food our food concessionaires have on their menu! See if you recognize any of the foods like the Flamin’ Hot Chimichanga from Chicken Charlies or the Rainbow Shrimp Fries from Sharky’s Fish Fry! There’s more where that came from, but we don’t want to spoil the episode for you, just tune in for yourself!

 

Two separate episodes will air on Sunday, June 7 and June 21 at 9 p.m. on the Cooking Channel. The titles of each episode are “The Fryin’ King” and “The Kings Peach.” Set your DVR’s because you won’t want to miss your hometown Fair on national television!

Fairgrounds Appreciation Month – Vendors

Some go for the food. Others for the live music. Some for the horse racing. And many for the shopping! At fairs throughout the US the grounds and building are filled with local and traveling vendors selling their products from the latest slicer and dicer, to handmade candles and jewelry, to hats and so much more!

 

At The Big Fresno Fair we fill two whole buildings, as well as part of our grounds with these amazing vendors, many of which are family-owned, small businesses.  They are a key part of the fair experience and we are grateful for them. And we know each of the 175 fairs throughout the nation are too!

 

Thank you to all our fair vendors. We know this year has been tough, but we will get through it together and we will hopefully see you all in October!

From lobster fries to cinnamon rolls, it’s something we all love to indulge in!
