Confession time—I have never been to a state fair. We had a festival in my home city of Fort Wayne, IN every year that I tried to go to often (100% just for the Wisconsin cheese curds), but I have never experienced a good ole’ state version.
I am going to change that this year. In fact, seeing as it starts July 14, I have to start saving up all of my cheat days so I can eat with reckless abandon.
The good news is, the California State Fair made the top 10 in America this year! According to the Sacramento Business Journal, last year we were ranked 13th. This year we move up 7 spots to number 6!
Mississippi holds the top spot and I am assuming they fry things we haven’t even though of. When it comes to food, southern states like Mississippi know what they are doing!
