Andrew Novick’s X-Treme Pancake Breakfast - Saturday
Andrew Novick’s X-Treme Breakfast Burrito - Sunday
Our first year, Andrew grilled so many pancakes, he blew a fuse at the National Western. More than 500 attendees lined up to try pancakes the likes of which no human had ever encountered. Pancakes topped with gummy worms, artichokes, 20 kinds of butter and so much more!
This year, Andrew is back – with double the X-Treme Breakfast offerings. In addition to the X-Treme Pancakes on Saturday morning ( 10:00 – 1:00 at the Gazebo ), Andrew will also be kicking off our new Viva Denver Day on Sunday with X-Treme Breakfast Burritos! (10:00 – 1:00 at the Gazebo ).
Don’t Judge Me!

Competitive Eating Competitions – How Many Blue Ribbons Can YOU Eat?
Well, you don’t actually EAT the Blue Ribbons – you WIN them, by eating stuff! And each Blue Ribbon comes with a free Denver County Fair poster! Schedule TBA!
Let’s Fry it and Dip It in Chocolate!
… and then wrap bacon around it! At Denver County Fair, we understand your natural cravings, and we’re here to help. Our Food Map will help you pinpoint which booths are serving fried pickles, funnel cakes, chocolate-covered bacon, fried cookies, Twinkie Dogs and whatever other culinary perversion you desire. It’s the last weekend of summer! Go for it!
It’ll be a Cake Walk!
Friday 9:00. Saturday 9:00. Sunday 5:00
We’re ending each day with an old-fashioned Cake Walk in our Kitchen Pavilion! Each evening, we’ll give away five cakes to some lucky attendees! Free to enter, fun to win! PLUS – we’ve added Cupcake Lightning Rounds! If you win one of those, you eat the cupcake on the spot!
Colorado Beer Garden
Denver is one of the nation’s micro-brew capitals! We have more local beers than you can shake a stick at, and here’s your chance to try a bunch of them! Buy them by the glassful or ask for the Beer Garden Sampler Special!
Blue Ribbon Foodie Award!
Did you just read this whole page and want to do it all? Then you, my friend, could win a Blue Ribbon Foodie Award at the Denver County Fair! When you arrive, pick up a Denver County Fair Food Map with the Blue Ribbon Foodie Award instructions on the back. There will be a list of “tasks” and foods to taste at the fair. Complete any 10, have the vendor initial that you’ve actually done it, turn in your list to the Kitchen Pavilion manager, and she’ll give you your Blue Ribbon Foodie Award to wear proudly as you waddle out the door and into the world.
