There are certain rites of passage that one must complete before they can truly claim the honorable title of "Texan." If you’ve never stopped on the side of a highway on a warm spring day to make your entire family take pictures in a field of bluebonnets, then you’re probably not really a Texan. Similarly, if you don’t eat at least one Fletcher’s corny dog at the state fair each year, can you really claim that you’re a card-carrying Texan? Probably not.
Last week, when The State Fair of Texas announced that it would not open for the 2020 season, every stomach in a 500-mile radius grumbled in disappointment. Sure, we’ll miss the carnival rides, Big Tex, and weird butter sculptures, but what really draws crowds to the fair? Fried food.
Luckily, Fletcher’s Original Corny Dogs found a way to bring the fair to us. From now until November, they’re doing pop-up events around DFW, serving their original corny dogs, funnel cakes, and curly fries.
The current pop-ups for Tarrant County are scheduled for Sept. 3 at the Squire Shop, 4516 Hartwood Drive, from 3 – 7 p.m., and Sept. 17 at Atwoods Ranch and Home, 6001 Lake Worth Blvd., from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m.
The full schedule can be found on Fletcher's website
