Submit your entries to participate in this year's Big Eats food competition! The competition recognizes the incredible food offered at the Fair and the talented folks behind the counter.
You may enter your food item(s) in multiple categories, but if chosen, the entry will only be selected as a finalist in one of the following categories - Best Tasting, Most Creative or New Food. All finalists will be entered into the Fairgoer Favorite category. If you are entering more than one food item, you cannot enter the items in the same categories. Separate applications are required for each food item.
Defend your crown! Winning entries from 2016 in the Best Tasting, Most Creative and Fairgoer Favorite categories can be re-entered in this year's competition.
To be considered for the competition, vendors must submit a food item, detailed description, ingredient list and photos.
Upload photos of your masterpiece in the fields below. Please provide us with the best quality photos possible - 200 dpi preferred. If selected as a finalist, these photos will be featured on TheBigE.com, The Big E app and the Facebook contest page for the Fairgoer Favorite award. The finalist entries will be photographed by a Big E photographer on the first day of the Fair, Sept. 15.
Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about your food?
Judging for The Big Eats takes place Saturday, Sept. 30, and awards will be distributed Sunday, Oct. 1. The winners of each category will be selected by a panel of local celebrity judges and one lucky fairgoer.
Voting for Fairgoer Favorite takes place on The Big E Facebok page, Sept. 15 - 30. The top vote-getting entry will be declared the winner.
