The Wisconsin State Fair will have more than 100 new foods at this year's fair taking place Thursday, Aug. 6 – Sunday, Aug. 16.
Descriptions of all new food items are available on the attached document and at WiStateFair.com.
Eight finalists have been selected from 34 entries for The Sporkies
The final judging and presentation of The Golden Spork Award for each will take place during the Wisconsin State Fair. The finalists will showcase their creations in front of the crowd and compete for first, second and third place. Judging will begin at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at the Bank Mutual Amphitheater.
One fair goer will have the opportunity to be part of the celebrity panel and taste-test the final creations as a judge. Interested foodies will be able to enter the contest throughout the month of July via social media, using the hashtag #Sporkies2015.
Fair guests are encouraged to participate in the judging during the fair by sampling all of The Sporkies entries and voting for their favorites to award a fourth Golden Spork Trophy for the Fairgoers’ Fave. Voting will be available via social media using #FairgoersFave or at the Guest Services Pavilion presented by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, located on Central Avenue near Central Park and the Exposition Center.
