The East Texas State Fair presents "Fair Food Drive-In" from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. June 4-7. Vendors offer a variety of fair food to go including Funnel Cakes, Double-Decker Funnel Cakes, Jumbo Corn Dogs, Texas-Sized Turkey Legs, Loaded Nachos, Loaded Waffle Fries, Loaded Tater Tots, Volcano Fries, Wonderstick Ice Cream, Ice Cream Cones, Ice Cream Floats, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, and Iced Tea.
The Fair Food Drive-In vendors include East Texas-based McKinney Concessions and Corky Westmorland Concessions alongside Wonderstick Ice Cream.
This year has been challenging to say the least, but the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the event industry especially hard. Local food concessionaires are suffering staggering losses after a summer full of events were canceled. The East Texas State Fair is stepping in to help by setting up this event.
The grounds are equipped with hand sanitizing stations and staff to make sure visitors are adhering to social distancing standards. Food stand workers are required to wear masks and gloves at all times.
Food stands are set up along Fair Park Drive near Rose Stadium for visitors to drive up, order, and take to-go.
