The Stanislaus County Fair has been chosen to be featured on the Food Network’s new show “Carnival Eats.”

After extensive research and contacting the Fair’s food vendors, the Food Network Channel made the final decision to feature The Stanislaus County Fair in their “Carnival Eats” show.

“We were notified yesterday of the great news,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for The Stanislaus County Fair in a statement issued on Monday. “This is a great opportunity for us to not only showcase the importance of Fairs in California, but to highlight our great community in Stanislaus County and the mouth-watering food we have at the Fair.”

Food Network TV series “Carnival Eats” features the unique and delicious foods found at carnivals and fairs. “Carnival Eats” is produced by award-winning filmmaker James Hyslop, and will premiere later this summer on the Food Network, Great American Country and The Cooking Channel. “Carnival Eats” is similar to the series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” The host of the show will be actor, Noah Cappe.

The show has already chosen the food vendors that will be featured and filmed on July 12 and 13 during the run of the Fair.

The 2014 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 11 for a 10-day run. Visit the Fair’s website for upcoming ticket sale information at
