With its collection of rides, games, performers, and family fun, the Salem Fair has earned the distinction of being named one of the Top fairs in the country, and it's become an annual tradition for many locals and visitors in the region. Of course, one of the most unique parts of any experience at a fair or carnival is the unique food.
It's a time when calories don't count and you can treat yourself to some one-of-a-kind creations. It doesn't have to be your birthday to celebrate with a Birthday Cake Funnel Cake! The funnel cake stand located across from the carousel offers this specialty flavor that features a freshly-made funnel cake, powdered sugar, sprinkles, and birthday cake icing that melts all over the cake. It's extra sweet and extra delicious!
Gillette's is a family-owned stand that's been part of the food scene at the Salem Fair for 25 years. The pizza is highlighted by Gillette's made-from-scratch marinara sauce and a generous amount of toppings. From sausage and pepperoni to chicken bacon ranch, it's a pizza party!
The menu also includes strombolis and calzones.
Powered by an engine that was built in , the old-fashioned ice cream machine at John's Ice Cream churns out some of the creamiest ice cream you'll find. It's the perfect sweet treat for a warm summer day and the taste of the ice cream will help you understand why John and his wife, Charlene, won the Best Outside Exhibit award at the Salem Fair.
A Bacon Cheeseburger on a Honey Bun. Between the sweetness of the honey bun, crispy and salty flavors of the bacon, juiciness of the burger, and creaminess of the cheese, it's a symphony of flavors you just have to experience for yourself. The advice of the gentleman who prepared our burger?
What is the best way to eat an Oreo? At the Salem Fair, you fry it! At the Fried Dough stand, the Oreos are freshly fried and then topped with powdered sugar.
The heat from the fryer causes the cookie to slightly melt, giving the fantastic combination of a melted Oreo, batter and powdered sugar. The only challenge will be giving the Oreos time to cool before you eat all of them.
Don't forget that it's important to eat your vegetables! For an extra layer of flavor, pair the fried broccoli with some fried cheddar cheese sticks.
