Fair Food

A visit to the midway at MontanaFair is like a fun culinary trip around the world.

Billings’ Athenian Restaurant will be selling Greek gyros. Rocky Mountain Concessions sells bratwurst, Polish sausages and German Fleischkuekle, a savory meat pie. The Sons of Norway offer lefse and the always-popular Vikings on a stick. Taco del Sol offers south-of-the-border fare, and Tropical Island sells deep-fried plantain chips and Jamaican pork. You’ll also find Japanese sushi, and numerous Asian dishes that vary from egg rolls and noodle bowls to fried rice and wontons. At the Mr. Scoops booth, you can finish your trip around the world with sweet Italian ice.

A little less adventurous but no less scrumptious are the all-American carnival standards like corndogs, hot dogs, hamburgers, cheese curds, curly fries, nachos, pretzels and pizza.

Satisfy a sweet tooth with funnel cakes, cotton candy and caramel apples, or try deep fried Twinkie, Snickers candy bars, or Oreo cookies. Or you can take your dessert to go with a strawberry shortcake kabob. To cool off, enjoy fresh-squeezed lemonade, ice cream, milkshakes, root beer floats and Sno-cones.

And don’t forget the Lunch Bunch deal. From noon to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, Aug. 16-20, admission to the fair is only $5. Lunch bunch visitors will receive a token at the gate, and a refund on admission if the token is returned by 2 p.m.
