Fair Fare on the Square

Back for Seconds

“Fair Fare on the Square” returns to Downtown Garland with a new menu of Fair-inspired Foods the Entire month of September

Last September, when the State Fair was canceled, restaurants in downtown Garland decided to step up to the plate with “Fair Fare on the Square.” Would-be fairgoers flocked to these eateries to get their fill of all things fit to be fried or served on a stick. The month-long program was such a hit that it’s back for “seconds” in 2021, and poised to become a tradition in its own right.

Fair Fare on the Square kicks off on September 1 and runs the entire month, giving visitors a head start on fair-inspired flavors. There is no admission fee, and items are priced to entice at $2 to $15. Participating eateries are situated on Main, 6th and State streets – all either on or just steps from Garland’s historic Square, where the food and drink can be enjoyed al fresco if desired. Sample a corny dog waffle or “trashcan” beef brisket fries. Move on to funnel cake fries with fruity pebbles or a churro sundae, and wash it all down with a S’moretado or Big Tex Tea. That’s just a sneak peek. Make a progressive meal of it, and order lots to share, or come back on multiple days to sample even more.

Please check directly with individual restaurants for their opening hours and days. Below is a list of participating restaurants and more of their “Fair Fare” specials.
