This Saturday will kick-off a six month series of events, sure to satisfy your cravings for fair food and local food carts. Each month will include a variety of vendors and menu items at this new, but much-anticipated outdoor event. Admission and parking are both free. Your food purchases will help support the non-profit Dodge County Fair Association as well as the participating vendors, who may have endured hardships in 2020.
The menu for Saturday, April 24th will include at least eight vendors who will provide a slate of finger foods, sweet treats and fair food favorites. Attendees can stop out to the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam anytime between 11am and 8pm. Beaver Dam is just a short drive from Madison, Milwaukee and the Fox Valley.
