Dodge County Fairgrounds Hosting Fair Food Festival

(Beaver Dam) An upcoming series of events will provide a fix for Dodge County residents hungry for fair food. The Dodge County Fairgrounds is hosting the Fair Food Festival which will feature sweet treats, fried fair food and an assortment of food carts. A variety of new vendors will be showcased during each event. Picnic tables and shelters will be available for relaxing and listening to music outdoors while enjoying the carnival foods. Attendees are also encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs. Admission is free and organizers say there will be plenty of parking available, which is also free. Funds raised from the events will help support the non-profit Fair Association and the maintenance of the Dodge County Fairgrounds. Organizers say the communities support will also aid many struggling, local food vendors, who have experienced hardships during the pandemic. Events are scheduled rain or shine for April 24, May 8, June 5, July 17, September 4 and October 2. Attendees may arrive for lunch or dinner anytime between 11am and 8pm. There is a $75 monthly reservation fee for those interested in setting up a food cart at the event. 

Those interested in registering a food cart should contact Barb Mullin at [email protected] or 920-885-3586. Cash or check payment will be accepted prior to April 10th. Payment may be sent to: Dodge County Fair Association, P.O. Box 654, Beaver Dam, WI 53916. 

Food vendors will enjoy high voltage direct electricity, water, restrooms and garbage receptacles and service with the $75 monthly reservation fee. Vendors may secure space at all six events for only $400.
