Although they are referred to by many different names, fairs, in some form, have existed at least as long as recorded history itself. These gatherings of people occur for many reasons including, but not limited to the following: trading, business meetings, demonstrations/displays, and entertainment.However, regardless of the nature of the fair, the essence of the event ultimately comes down to one key component: the food.
The most prevalent and most popular foods may vary by region, but there exists a list of favorites which recur in some variety nearly anywhere a fair can be found.
