Texas State Fair

The GREAT TEXAS TRADITION!  The State Fair of Texas is a DFW attraction and tradition for those who live here!   So make this a don't miss event on your calendar this year!  There really is something for everyone at the fair from unique foods, exciting carnival rides and games on the Midway, livestock shows, concerts, exciting football games including Texas vs. OU, shopping and so much more. Celebrating all things Texas since 1886, promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment.  

This is a shopper’s paradise, you can shop for almost anything at the fair. Spend hours shopping at The Embarcadero for arts and crafts, pet-related items, jewelry, cars, boats and more.  If you’ve seen it on an infomercial chances are you’ll find it at the fair! 

And then there is the food! 
 The State Fair of Texas is the Fried Food Capital of Texas!  But the Fair is a celebration of all types of Texas food and wine. It is 24 days of Texas chefs, Texas wine and craft beer, and Texas-based food companies.  There are 20+ cooking contests slated in the Home Depot Competition Kitchen schedule for 2014.  There are 114 celebrity chef demos scheduled in the Cutco Celebrity Chef Kitchen. The lineup includes John Tesar of Knife, Jack Perkins of Maple & Motor, Estevan Gallindo from Hattie’s, Norman Grimm of Baboush, David Hollister from Gas Monkey Bar & Grill and many, many more.  Want to sample some Texas wine and craft beer while you are at the Fair, be sure to visit the State Fair Wine Garden. Each day there are three to four different wineries that are pouring. Samples can be purchased by the tasting, glass or bottle. In addition, there will be flights of Texas craft beer available. 

The State Fair of Texas is a celebration of Texas culture.  And there is no place better to learn about agriculture and Texas heritage than a walk through the Livestock barns. 
Each year more than 5,200 students participate in the youth events and leadership contests.  But you don’t have to show an animal in a livestock contest to enjoy this piece of the State Fair.  Check the daily schedule for contest times and come and support the students as they learn and earn money for college.  The State Fair offers exhibitors of all ages to participate in various livestock shows and contests throughout the event’s 24 day run.  Shows include: youth market, youth breeding, open livestock, and equestrian events. FFA, 4-H and intercollegiate students have the chance to participate in multiple agriculture related contests.


Then there are the shows, you’ll find shows for just about everything at the fair!  In 2009 Oprah and her BFF Gail made an appearance at the State Fair and taped a show.  Mark your calendar now and make sure you and your family take a fair day this fall!  Local schools have a Texas state fair day where the kids get out of school for the day to enjoy the fair!  The Fair is open
