New in 2019! The Lake County Fair is proud to announce a new experience for our fairgoers and our food vendors. The Taste of the Fair experience allows fairgoers to sample a variety of different and delicious Fair foods. The experience encourages vendors to offer small versions of their signature menu items for a reduced price so fairgoers can enjoy more of their favorite Fair foods! Fairgoers will be able to tell that a food vendor is participating in the Taste of the Fair by looking for a sign displayed in their booth which will be provided by the Lake County Fair. Fairgoers will then vote on their favorite Taste of the Fair samples. The winner of the Taste of the Fair will be given a feather flag to showcase at their booth for the duration of the Fair. The winner will also receive a $200 credit to be used towards their 2020 food vendor booth fee.
The Taste of the Fair will take place on Wednesday, July 24 – Friday, July 26 from 12:00pm – 5:00pm each day. Each participating food vendor will select one item from their menu to be sampled*. Samples must be a quarter of the regular sized portion. All samples will be advertised as $3.00. Voting will conclude on Friday, July 26 at 5:00pm, with the winner being announced at 6:00pm. The flag will be displayed from Friday, July 26 at 6:00pm until Sunday, July 29 at 7:00pm.
Applications must be received by Friday, July 19 at 4:30pm. Once approved, food vendor and sample will be advertised on the Lake County Fair website and all social media platforms.
*Please note there will be no duplicate samples allowed. Each vendor will provide a list of three items in order of preference for the Lake County Fair staff to choose from. Samples will be approved on first come, first served basis.
