Dodge County Fairgrounds Fair Food Festival Returns Saturday

(Beaver Dam) The Fair Food Festival returns to the Dodge County Fairgrounds Saturday. The monthly series of events features sweet treats, fried fair food and an assortment of food carts. A variety of new vendors will be showcased during each month’s event. Today’s event will not only include an updated menu but a small midway, carnival games, and motorcycle racing will be available to entertain visitors. Organizers say Wenzel Entertainment provided two food stands at the first two Fair Food Festivals. They say after securing concessions, the organization wanted to also provide entertainment for patrons. Corina Wenzel of Wenzel Entertainment says the rides are a good mix for all ages. She says they will have something for everyone to do. Ride tickets will be available for purchase at the event. If weather permits, rides may also be available to enjoy again on Sunday. The motorcycle races, hosted by the Beaver Cycle Club, will get underway at 5 and go until 9pm. Get half-price admission to the races with a food purchase coupon from any of the Fair Food Fest vendors after 4 pm. Those interested in competing should register from 1:30-to-3:45pm, with a pre-meeting and practice scheduled to follow at 3:45 and 4pm. Participant fees are $25 for amateur class and $30 for pro class. Food purchases during the festival will help support the non-profit Dodge County Fair Association as well as the participating vendors, who may have endured hardships in 2020. Visitors are welcome to enjoy a socially distanced meal at one of the picnic tables provided or bring their own lawn chairs. The event will begin at 11am tomorrow and run until 8pm. Future fair food festival dates include July 17th, September 4th, and October 2nd. The Dodge County Fair is scheduled to return with a variety of family friendly events and midway rides on August 18th through the 22nd.
