Fernie’s Story

Fernie’s Funnel Cakes has been a staple of the Texas State Fair for over four decades. Wanda “Fernie” Winter brought the first funnel cakes to the Texas State Fair in 1969 and unknowingly created a food dynasty. Through the years, Fernie’s children and grandchildren have also become part of the state fair tradition, inventing new, innovative treats and eats for fair goers young and old. No stranger to competition, Fernie’s selections won the Texas State Fair Best Taste award in 2015 and has been a finalist numerous times.
