Arizona State Fair Offers Pie Eating Contest


The Arizona State Fair in Phoenix is known for breaking records when it comes to Fair Food consumption, especially items that are deep fried and on-a-stick. Although our Fair series is coming to an end, we couldn’t resist showing you a couple of photos in case you are ready to put away all food inhibitions and dig in!

This Fair obviously offers a pie eating contest (with a messiest face winner!), as well as cooking contests throughout the Fair. Other food-related highlights include:

â‹… Uncle Kunkle’s Farm – Kids can learn to plow, plant and tend to the chickens in this 19,000 sq ft educational exhibit featuring a day in the life of a farmer. The experience includes a fun mini tractor ride, orange picking, harvesting vegetables, collecting eggs and ‘milking’ a cow.

â‹… Sale of Champions – Children ages 9 to 19 auction off their prize-winning animals and learn about the business of agriculture and livestock.

⋅ Ghirardelli Chocolate Championship, Chocolate and the Fair – what a great combo!
