Top 5 Eats at the Wisconsin State Fair - Week 1 Drive Thru

The Wisconsin State Fair may have been canceled, but you can still get some of your favorite fair foods!

The four-week "Fair Food Drive-Thru" will start today at 4 p.m.

Here's how it works: Vehicles will enter the park to get in line. One-way traffic will wind through the Milwaukee Mile and State Fair Park.

When you see a food vendor you would like to try, exit the drive-through lane to the vendor area and order and receive your food and then get back in the drive-through lane for more food options.

Not sure what to get?  Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Here are our Top 5 BBQ Picks for this week’s Wisconsin State Fair Drive Thru!
