The UP State Fair always has the best vendors and it’s our pleasure to see new and returning favorites to the midway every year. Our team has the difficult task to award the best of the best based on their category. Here are this year’s top picks:
Best Midway Food: CK’s Concessions
CK Concessions, who is known for their famous Mexican Garbage Fries, walked away winning the Best Midway Food in 2021.
“The UP State Fair is always a big deal for us and the income we receive from this event has helped us make renovations to our food truck,” said Shane Smith. ” We really couldn’t do it without the support of all the people who come out to the fair.”
