The funnel cakes are not included this year. If you want the dining plan options they have a brochure for that in guest services and it's just the normal entree and side options.

Anyone know if they are on the Dining Plans this year?
If so.... Just at the County Fair?

What what?!?! Seriously? If only I known! I'd smash a funnel cake for dinner. Being an adult is fun!

Bourbon Peach Pie Looks Good.

Nope, not in my opinion. This forum doesn't see enough traffic to justify it. I think a normal Food thread that gets continued every year should suffice.

Ok..... Is this any good?
Never heard of a corn layered w/ pimento cheese.

Stop drooling on the screen and come try our roasted corn layered with pimiento cheese at 2018 Great Carolina Fest June 9-24.... Carowinds.

Does anyone know if the "2018 Great Carolina Fest" is going to run during the Weekdays.

In 2016.... If I remember right it was just a Weekend thing (not sure if Friday was included in that).

Reading what it says online, it reads as from June 9th to the 24th:
Kick off summer with a Carolina-style celebration for the whole family at the all-new Great Carolina Fest, from June 9th through the 24th.

Also if you check the park's Facebook page under events, every day during those dates is listed from 12-9pm. When you click the +13 (circled in red) it shows this.

I talked to Chef Chris the other day and he said it will be 16 days straight. There will be 6 samples for 25 dollars and then most everything else will be meals on the dining plan, some of the things are Frog Legs and Fries and Pimento Cheese Burger.

Thanks for the info - I’ve had the Cheese quesadilla from HH and a couple of Burritos. Chick-Fil-a and Panda are always a must but I see now i’ve got plenty of options to try out.
