Santa Cruz in Photos: Fair Food Favorites, Minus the Fair

Drive-thru fair food sale to continue for two weekends


Willie Madaus, owner of Country Fair Cinnamon Rolls, hands Connie Vasquez of Watsonville her order at the first-ever drive-thru fair food sale at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.

The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds over the next two weekends will continue hosting its drive-thru fair food sale Sept. 11-13 and again Sept. 18-20 from 11am to sundown.

The annual fair was canceled in June because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The drive-thru fair food sale offers a chance to not miss out on classic fair food such as corn dogs, funnel cakes, Greek food, cinnamon rolls and deep-fried Oreos, among other fair favorites.

Drive-thru events are also one of the few opportunities that fairgrounds across the state have had to recover lost revenue.
