This Is Your Last Chance to Get Wisconsin State Fair Food

And this weekend, there’s cream puffs

This Thursday through Sunday, State Fair Park will be offering drive-thru State Fair food for the last time this season.

The Fair, which has been offering drive-thru food for the past month, will be serving up tacos, pulled pork, hot Wisconsin cheese and, obviously, cream puffs starting Thursday, Aug. 13 at 4 p.m. 



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

Here’s when the drive-thru will be open from Thursday, Aug. 13-Sunday, Aug. 16: 

  • Thursday: 4 p.m.-8 p.m.,
  • Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
  • Sunday: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Enter Gate 9 at State Fair Park, at S. 76th Street and W. Pierce Street. The gate will open one hour before the drive-thru begins.

Things might get wild, seeing as this is folks’ final change to get at the state fair food, so you might want to visit the state fair site and pre-order your cream puffs before arrival.
