Midway operations manager James Radke says food vendors have turned it up a notch for 2014, creating what he calls "some of the craziest and tastiest foods we've ever had."
Among the new menu options are bacon-wrapped corn on the cob, deep-fried donut bacon cheeseburgers, crocodile sliders and pizza topped with seasoned scorpions.
And for dessert, how about chocolate dipped cookie dough on a stick or deep fried peanut butter cups.
The award for Best New Food on the Midway will be unveiled at Sneak-a-Peek day on July 3.
The Calgary Stampede runs July 4–13.
