Food Demonstrators

Cook up some FUN!

The Utah State Fair is looking for experienced food demonstrators to help educate the public about cooking, baking, outdoor BBQ, and more.
This is a great way for chefs, food-related companies, food bloggers, and general foodies to market and grow their business!
Fill out the form below and you will be contacted.

2021 Application for Food Demonstrator

We are thrilled to offer an opportunity to feature local culinary talent, foodies, and bloggers at the Utah State Fair, the largest event in the state! Please remember that these food demonstrations are offered to provide marketing exposure for you and/or your brand to our Fair audience (of nearly 300,000 attendees and 39,000 social media followers) rather than for financial gain.
Submission of this application does not guarantee a demonstration at the Utah State Fair, nor does it constitute any agreement with the Utah State Fair to provide space, services, or compensation. Additionally, a previous food demonstration at the Fair does not guarantee a demonstration in this or any future fair. If you have applied or demonstrated at the Fair before, an application will still be necessary. Thank you!

The Utah State Fair runs Thursday, Sept. 9th - Sunday, Sept. 19th. We are looking for food demonstrations all days of the Fair, from noon - 7:30 pm. We try to honor the dates and availability noted in your application but sometimes, because of other demonstrations and food contests, this becomes impossible. Please keep in mind that weekend times are the highest in-demand and can be the hardest spots to get.
(for example unavailable before 3 pm on Tuesdays)
  • Demonstrating at the Fair is and opportunity for marketing your product, service, or person. Food demonstrators are not compensated financially, however, all selected demonstrators will receive two admission tickets to the 2021 Utah State Fair to be used the day of their demonstration (one for themselves and one guest) and a parking pass.
  • All food demonstrators need to supply their own ingredients and cooking equipment for their dishes. These items can often be tax deductible for marketing your business. We will have a few basics onsite (salt, pepper, spray oil, etc.) and some basic cookware.
  • We ask all food demonstrators to give away copies of their recipes to the audience and make recipes available to the Fair for publication (such as social media, Pinterest, etc.) upon request. Credit will be given to the demonstrator or recipe developer.
  • We also encourage demonstrators to bring a giveaway item to give away to an audience member.
