We know you’re missing the fair (we are, too) but you can still find fair food this summer near Champaign-Urbana to get you through
Families can find a fair food pop-up event near you or take your kids on a mini road trip to find one of our fair food stops, if you wish
As it’s prime fair season, we are seeing some events “pop up” (literally) offering fair food favorites to families who are missing the fair. This weekend is no exception! Scroll down to see the events we know of and find out how to find a funnel cake. Prefer to skip the events and just find a local establishment offering your favs? We can tell you where to find fair food outside of the fair within an hour drive of Champaign-Urbana.
Still looking for some ways to keep busy these final summer months? Don’t forget about our ultimate outdoor post – it’s full of ideas, like where to take a hike or stomp in a creek (trust us, it is a blast).
How about planning a unique day trip one day this summer? We have a lot of those ideas, too, like a drive down to Amish country for the day.
Do you like giveaways? We’ve got some of those happening right now, too! Enter the Virginia Theatre popcorn giveaway by commenting with your favorite movie on this post and then head over to Instagram and tell us what your favorite thing about Curtis Orchard is and get entered to win a free t-shirt!
In short, we’re not short on ideas of how to have fun this summer. We hope that you find something that’s a great fit for your family!
