Taste of The Fair

September 24th - 27th

and again

October 1st - 4th

The 2020 East Texas State Fair may have been canceled, but the fairgrounds will be anything but quiet this fall. The East Texas State Fair will be presenting Taste of the Fair -- an event created for fair food fans all over East Texas. Visitors can take home all of the fair food classics like turkey legs, funnel cakes, candied apples, and jumbo corn dogs, as well as local favorites like the tamale slammer, the wonderstick, peach puppies, volcano fries, and more!

Fair food concessions will be set up in a come-and-go fashion and all food will be served and packaged to take to-go.

The event will take place Thursday through Sunday of two consecutive weeks. September 24th through the 27th, and again October 1st through the 4th. Food vendors will be open 11:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Food stands will be setup along Fair Park Drive at the East Texas State Fairgrounds. The grounds will be equipped with hand sanitizing stations and staff to ensure that visitors are adhering to social distancing standards. All staff, concessionaires, and visitors will be required to wear masks. Seating will not be available, as food is served to-go only.
