- Costa Mesa
- $4 Taste of Fair Food happens each Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; every vendor will offer a $4 sample of a specific dish
Thursday is the fourth weekday, making the upcoming, super-tempting, ultra-appetizing dining deal at the soon-to-open OC Fair especially easy to remember.
If you just stow that "4" in your noggin, you'll remember the specifics of this winning weekly happening: It's on the fourth weekday (Thursday), the samples found at each food vendor will be four dollars each, and it all wraps up at 4 o'clock.

Cinchy stuff, totally easy to remember. And here's one more "for" to help your recall when it comes to this reoccurring offer: This is "for" fair-loving foodies who love to try a lot of fun flavors, all in one go, but also crave a deal to help them not break the bank.
What won't be quite as simple to remember?
The long list of 2022 savory, sweet, and offbeat samples on the $4 Taste of Fair Food roster. There are quite a few, and obviously a number of participating vendors, so scrolling through this list before you go is a wise idea.
A Fried Twinkie at Fried A Fair, the Fruity Pebble Dole Whip at Nitro Treats, and a bowl of Pink's chili are some of the mmm-inspiring offerings that tasters will encounter.
Again, this is a Thursday-only kind of deal, and only from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., so you'll want to plan your day accordingly (and, yes, entry to the Costa Mesa festival is a separate ticket).
The 2022 OC Fair opens on July 15, and will run for a month, on select dates, bidding foodies and all fair fans "fair"-well on Aug. 14. That means you have four Thursdays, beginning on Thursday, July 21, to try out the $4 Taste of Fair Food samples.
