State Fair of Texas

While Mother Nature must have missed the memo that Fall begins next week here in North Texas. Big Tex is ready to greet you at the Texas State Fair September 27 – October 20, 2019.


Fair Park, a National Historic Landmark and site of the 1936 Texas Centennial Exhibition, is home to some of Dallas’ best museums, educational discovery centers, and the world’s largest collection of Art Deco exhibit buildings, art, and sculptures. While at the Fair Park during the State Fair of Texas, be sure to visit one of the many points of interest located in the historic 277-acre park.


The State Fair of Texas® attracts fried food lovers from across the nation. The Fair offers iconic treats such as Fletcher’s Corny Dogs, Fernie’s Funnel Cakes, and everything from fried Oreos to fried coke. Although famous for its fried delicacies, the State Fair also offers healthier foods and options for those with dietary needs. Check those options here.
