This year, our county fair is going to have a special food item that is only found at a select few fairs across the country. 

And it’s a food we have been waiting on for quite some time. 

It’s the time of year that we have all been waiting for: the Best 12 Days of the Summer. A lot of us go for the animals, others for the rides, but whatever you seek at the Erie County Fair, most visits end with one thing in particular. 

The food.

Maybe you like nachos or fried cheese on a stick. Let’s not forget about fried oreos (a classic) or cheesecake on a stick? (You can put pretty much anything on a stick and it will still receive the title of “fair food.”)

The #1 food item that fairgoers want added to the fairgrounds is, by far, anything gluten free. 

And now it’s finally here!

The Silly Yak shared the news this summer that they will be the first ever, all gluten-free stand at the Erie County Fair, making our fair one of the only ones with such a cool feature. 

“We are new around here and so excited to bring gluten-free fair food to our community starting at The 2023 Erie County Fair!

Follow along as we introduce ourselves, the food you will find at The Silly Yak, and show the behind the scenes of starting a concessions business.”

So many people have chimed in, eagerly looking forward to mozzarella sticks, corn dogs, funnel cakes, and more! 

Look for The Silly Yak trackside at the Erie County Fair and get your fix on all your favorite fried foods…including fried oreos!
