Texas State Fair

If you have not gotten a chance to experience all the fun and excitement of the Texas State Fair, then you’re missing out! With only a few days left, you don’t want to miss out on this good ole’ down south time. Enjoy live music, creative arts and exhibits, shopping, rides, food and more! And of course it wouldn’t be a full Texas State Fair experience without taking a photo with the main man himself, Big Tex.

Food, Food and More Food

It’s true. Texans fry almost anything. Enjoy savory, sweet and creative eats from fried beer to fried cream filled bacon wraps or if you choose to stick to the classics, Corny Dogs and turkey legs can be found throughout the fair. Try new, fresh flavors including a Fried Cup of Corn Elotes, filled with Mexican cheeses over a golden, flaky crust or get that sweet and salty flavor of the Kool-aid Pickle Dilly Sangria. The King Crispy Coconut Crab Sliders are perfect for dipping in your favorite sauces and the Orange Julia’s Beermosa is sure to wash it down.

Midway Rides

The State Fair Midway features more than 70 rides. Sore 500 feet in the air in the Top o’ Texas Tower as it sweeps you across views of downtown Dallas. Get a breathtaking view of Fair Park as the aerial track of the Texas Skyway stretches 1,800 feet over the colorful sights of Midway. The Dentzel Carousel is a must-ride at the Texas State Fair that takes you around and around on its antique, king horses.


Visit the Creative Arts Building as contestants showcase arts and crafts, culinary creations and performing arts. Witness demonstrations from Lone Star food icons in the Cutco Celebrity Chef Kitchen and sample tasty, unique dishes at the State Fair of Texas Competition Kitchen. Let the kids interact with one another as they create their own special dishes at Kids Can Cook, a fun way kids learn the basics of cooking. Take a peak at the thousand pound butter sculpture and don’t forget to attend the Oak Farms Theater production of “The Backyard Circus” and “The World of Magic.”
