Over the years, concessionaires have developed countless new food concepts and menu items – shocking combinations like funnel cake bacon queso burger, and buffalo chicken in a flapjack;  sweets like chocolate-covered strawberry waffle balls and deep-fried peaches and cream; and unique options like fried butter.

“This year’s commemorative theme art is about more than just food,” said Mitchell Glieber, StateFair of Texas president. “It’s about bringing people together. Whether you’re competing in a Creative Arts cooking contest, wandering the Big Tex Urban Farms greenhouse on the Midway, shopping for locally made treats, or taste-testing the Big Tex Choice Awards finalists, food is the common denominator all fairgoers come out to enjoy year after year.”
