Saz's at Wisconsin State Fair

One of the biggest fairs in the country, the Wisconsin State Fair, returns to Wisconsin State Fair Park August 2-12, 2018! What started as a two-day event in 1851 has turned into an 11-day fun fest. And a fair that lasts 11 days surely isn’t messing around. Treat yourself to delicious fair food, unique attractions, a variety of fair competitions and nonstop entertainment. We did mention the food, right? You’ll see some of the most interesting, even some of the weirdest, food around. If it can be fried, you’ll find it at the fair. You can be sure we’ll be bringing our A-game when it comes to offering up some festival-favorites across the park, hosting live music, catering private events at Saz’s Hospitality Village and participating in the Sporkies with unique menu items each year.

The Food!

With multiple Saz’s locations across the park, including a new concession stand by the WonderFair Wheel and our newly-updated Sazs BBQ (formerly Saz’s Ribs) building, you better believe we’ll be offering up crazy amounts of our best-selling festival food. What would an epic outdoor event during the best time of year be without some sour cream & chive fries, a sampler combo platter or a Saz’s signature BBQ pulled pork sandwich? Well, to some, not really summer at all. But, don’t worry. With 11 days, you’ve got plenty of time to try all your favorites and still leave room for that cream puff. This year, be sure to try our 2018 Sporkies finalist, Saz’s Breakfast Bombs. It’s two sweet cream cheese filled French toast bagel bombs surrounded by triple thick brown sugar and spice smoked bacon, served up with a side of house-made rum raisin cream cheese frosting for dipping. Can’t you almost taste it? And if you love it as much as we loved creating this deliciously fun treat, vote Saz’s Breakfast Bombs for #FairgoersFave

Private Events at Saz’s Hospitality Village

The fair definitely has a lot for all to enjoy. But, why not relax and have a private party with all of your friends and family paired with all the perks and exclusive benefits only Saz’s can provide? At Saz’s Hospitality Village, positioned conveniently on the perimeter of the park grounds, you can still take in the sights of the fair, then retreat to your group’s tent to enjoy some Saz’s food and even cream puff delivery. With a number of tents to accommodate any size private party or corporate event, you’ll enjoy a variety of flexible options and perks to make your celebration feel like that VIP party you deserve. Being around the State Fair block for quite some time, we’ve got plenty of experience to make it happen.

The Sporkies

No Wisconsin State Fair visit would be complete without checking out (and even participating in) the variety of exciting food competitions that happen throughout the fair, including the ever-popular Sporkies – the celebrity-judged food competition that celebrates everything from the unique to the unusual. Saz’s Breakfast Bombs was selected as a finalist for this year’s competition! You can try one for yourself all fair long. Let us know what you think and be sure to vote for us at the fair or by texing “Breakfast” to 27765!

Entertainment and Attractions, Galore!

Wisconsin State Fair knows how to pack in the fun, with all 11 days filled to the brim with things to do, live music to enjoy and attractions to amaze. America’s largest traveling ferris wheel, the WonderFair Wheel, makes its debut and will, no doubt, turn some heads. It stands 15 stories tall and features 528,000 vibrant LED lights! If that’s not impressive enough, it offers 10 miles of city views at its peak.

You won’t find a shortage of live music at this year’s State Fair, either! Saz’s is hosting nearly 30 artists on two stages – Saz’s Miller High Life Pavilion and the Saz’s BBQ Stage – across the park. See the full lineup below!

If you can’t tell how excited we are, just wait until the big event rolls around and see for yourself.  As always, we’ll see you at the fair for what’s sure to be another amazing year! #SazsAtTheFair
