This year’s Florida State Fair runs from Thursday, Feb. 9- Monday, Feb. 20. Here’s a peek at some of the wicked eats as you prepare to feast.

  • Tampa Cuban Funnel Cake: smoked ham, Spanish pork, Genoa salami, and the fixins’ nestled between two funnel cakes and encased with doughnut glaze
  • Sweet Potato Apple Pie: a mashup of sweet potato pie + butter, sugar, whipped cream, and apples.
  • Mangonada: blended fresh mangoes with chamoy, tajin, a tamarind stick, and tajin.
  • Cowbody Quesadilla: a “Texas-sized” quesadilla loaded with shredded barbeque chicken, cheese, corn, and black beans.

From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today, the fair is offering a sale on tickets. The $30 deal includes one Anyday armband + admission — 30% cheaper than at the gate. Buy tickets online or at participating Wawa locations.
