Deep-Fried Asparagus, that is. The first festival started with only 3 fryers…we now own 42 deep fryers!! Over the years, festival-goers have consumed tons of the delicious stuff. 18 tons of it, to be exact! If you’ve never had it, you’re in for a treat. If you have had it, we know you’ll come back for more this year. The preparation of this delectable treat includes Tempura Batter, Parmesan Cheese, Tobasco Sauce, Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic, Distilled White Vinegar, Fresh Asparagus, and of course lots of Volunteers!
People bring the whole family to The Stockton Asparagus Festival because it’s bunches of fun for everyone, and we think you’ll agree, this is everyone’s favorite thing to eat there. Just ask Joeny “Jaws” Chestnut, he’s the winner of last year’s Deep-Fried Asparagus Eating Competition!
