Enjoy the Youth Fair this Weekend

The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition is bigger and better then ever. This year, the Youth Fair is offering  an awesome craft beer garden, complete with a funnel cake burger- to satisfy the munchies! With more than 170 food vendors, there is something to satisfy every palate. In addition to the favorite Youth Fair foods like popcorn, cotton candy, elephant ears, corn on the cob, pretzels and candy apples be sure to stop by and see Jane at the Best Around for the best funnel cakes and elephant ears at the fair. Besides the funnel cake burger at the Outlaw Grill at Beer Haven, other musts are the “Sticky Pig on a Stick” (two Krispy Kreme Donuts, soft Strawberry Custard, dipped in rich chocolate fudge and rolled in applewood smoked candied bacon or Key Lime Pie Ice Cream with no bacon and graham cracker). Also new this year is the Miami Sundae created by Michael Kramer. The Miami Sundae is Cuban style roast pork, white rice, black beans, onions and plantains all served in a sundae cup. Definitely try the newest thrill ride- the Screamer, before indulging in these tasty treats.  The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, known for generations as The Youth Fair, is a private, not-for- profit organization that has donated well over $10 million in scholarships, awards and cash premiums to Miami-Dade students and is dedicated to supporting education and South Florida agriculture.
