The Big E

Big E to Host Special Fair Foods Drive-Thru Event on June 27 & 28

Fans of fair food at the Big E, like its cream puffs, will be able to enjoy a special drive-through food event on June 27 and June 28, the Eastern States Exposition announced Tuesday.

Visitors will be able to enjoy food from 11 of the fair's popular food vendors.

The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“It brings me great pleasure to welcome guests to our grounds, and provide a sample of their favorite Big E foods at this unique event,” Eastern States Exposition President and CEO Gene Cassidy said in a press release. “It is our hope that people will come from far and wide to get a taste of what’s to come in September at the Fair.”

There is no entry fee for the events.

Guests should enter at Gate 9 and will be directed down a designated path with food vendors on either side of the road. They will take your order and deliver your food before you move onto the next two stands.

Guests must bring face coverings.

According to a press release, this marks the first time in the bakery's history that you can purchase Big E Cream Puffs and Big Eclairs outside of the Big E Fair itself.
