If you're like me, one of the things you look forward to the most throughout the year is The Big E. If you don't know what The Big E is, it is a giant festival that takes place at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA, and has probably the best food you will ever taste in your life. The Big E always takes place in September / October when the official "fair season" is happening.

This year, the Big E has decided to do something huge. According to their website, they just announced that you don't need to wait until September anymore to get your hands on your favorite food. They are now offering "A Taste of the Big E Drive-Thru Food Preview" event on the grounds of Eastern States Exposition on Saturday June 27th and Sunday, June 28th.

There will be no entry fee, and guests will be asked to stay in their cars at all times, and wear face masks when ordering or picking up food from the food vendors. There will be food stands set up on each side of the road, and vehicles can enter single file. You will be able to order, pay and pick up your food before moving to the next stands.

The "Fan Favorite" vendor line-up includes: The Big E Bakery, Big Kahuna, Billie's Baked Potato, Brew Garden Pub Food, Butcher Boys, Calabrese Market, Chompers, Cinnamon Saloon, Pichie's Concessions, Poppie's, and Tots-A-Lot.

The hours for this will be Saturday, June 27 from 10AM - 7PM and Sunday, June 28 from 10AM - 6PM.

You can find more information and menus on their website.

I don't know about you, but I will be marking my calendar to get in line for this event. There are very few things I love more than The Big E, and the fact we are able to have a drive up one a few months in advance? Sign me up!
