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.
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.
