State Fair food is so good. Fried or on a stick, it’s the best food fest of the year!


I grew up in Iowa, where the state fair is a huge deal. Every summer would end with a trip to the fair and a search for the best and most creative treats. When it comes down to it, you want a couple things in your fair food: fried and/or on-a-stick. Everything else is up to your imagination!

Sometimes you don’t want to wait to go to the fair or maybe you want to throw a fair themed party in your backyard. Here are a few recipes that we’d suggest to satiate your taste buds.


1. Bacon Funnel Cakes

State Fair Funnel

In my opinion, funnel cakes are some of the best fair food. They’re like a mash up between a donut and a puzzle that you have to eat with a fork. This little diddy is upgraded with bacon!


2. State Fair Crescent Cheese Curds

Can I get a Y-U-M?! Cheese curds are a Midwest staple and twice as fun to eat during state fair season.


3. Double Bacon Crescent Corn Dogs

1. On-a-stick. 2. Uses Crescents. 3. Make these already, will ya?


4. Deep Fried Candy Bars

State Fair Candy

In the UK, the joke is that you can bring any candy to a chip shop and they will fry it for you. Now, that seems to go for state fairs too! I love a deep fried candy bar. It kinda tastes like the best donut you’ve ever had.


5. Thin Mint Fried Cookie Dough

State Fair Cookie

I mean, there is nothing about the name of this recipe that I don’t like. Plus, that bright green color is so eye-catching and fun!


6. Deep Fried Pickles

State Fair Pickles

When I was a kid, I used to get giant jars of pickles for Christmas every year. And it was usually my favorite gift.


7. Chip Crusted Bacon

State Fair Bacon

Salty, savory and crispy/crunchy seems like a showstopper to me.


8. Watermelon Daiquiri Freezer Pops

State Fair Watermelon

Look at how cute these are! Personally, I’m not a big fan of watermelon, which is an area of contention with everyone that I know and love. However, pop it on a stick and turn it into a daiquiri and I’ll give it a shot.


9. Savory Corn On A Stick

State Fair Corn

A corncob is pretty much a naturally occurring stick. Throwing a stick into the mix just for the joy of it is something only a state fair would dream up.


10. Taco Pops

State Fair Taco

Sometimes you just want a little taste. This is especially the case when you’ve got a day of state fair eating ahead of you. These tasty taco pops are just the solution.
