You Can Still Get Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puffs This Summer

Sometimes in this dark world, there is a ray of beautiful light.

These last few months have been pretty rough, but we come bearing good news: Wisconsin State Fair cream puffs are still on the table. 

From August 6 to 16, the dates the State Fair would have run, the signature artery-tightening, belt-challenging cream puffs will be available at the State Fair Park and other locations across the state.



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 and where:

Curbside at Wisconsin State Fair Park

Thursday, August 6 – Sunday, August 9 and Thursday, August 13 – Sunday, August 16  

Thursday – Saturday: 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Sunday: 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.  

At Festival Foods in Kenosha, Appleton, and Madison

Monday, August 10, Tuesday, August 11, and Wednesday, August 12 

10 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

The fair is also offering a “Corporate Cream Puff,” which sounds like something your farmer cousin calls you after you take a job in PR, but is actually a cream puff delivery service available for orders of five dozen or more, which means that your office or social group or whatnot can have literally hundreds of cream puffs brought right to your face. You don’t even have to stand up. We are truly a blessed people.

Corporate Cream Puff deliveries will be available from Thursday August 6 to Sunday August 16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.. For more info on ordering, click here.

Also, if we can go by past experience, after four of five of these things you might experience the sudden guilty desire to seriously start exercising again. The State Fair is aware of this and encourages it. Hence the Virtual Cream Puff 5k, which you can register for online. You can run or walk the 5k whenever and wherever you like after you register, and the proceeds benefit the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation. Registration gets you a 3-Pack Cream Puffs Voucher, redeemable for some curbside state fair creams puffs at State Fair Park, along with one 2021 Wisconsin State Fair Admission Ticket, a race shirt, and, according to their website “much more,” which is hard to contextualize, but we can only hope that it is more cream puffs.
