Fair Park is Dallas' largest cultural center, and an historical treasure of national importance. Established in 1880, Fair Park is owned and operated by the City of Dallas and has nearly 300 acres of museums, exhibit facilities, and park areas; alone, it rivals many cities in its diverse selection of meeting venues.
Facilities available for use range from the 71,000-seat Cotton Bowl to the 130-seat Margo Jones Theater. In between these are a coliseum, music hall, two outdoor amphitheaters, and exhibit facilities that can be configured for a variety of uses. Expansive exhibit halls built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Celebration comprise the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in the United States.
Fair Park hosts a wide variety of annual public events, including the largest State Fair in the nation, the Heart of Dallas Bowl football game, and the Dallas Summer Musicals.
Millions visit Fair Park's Art Deco-styled complex each year for its remarkable collection of cultural attractions and entertainment venues.
Just two miles east of downtown, 277-acre park is the largest historical landmark in Texas. Since 1886, Fair Park has been the site of the State Fair of Texas, the largest state fair in the United States. Fair Park is home to eight museums, an IMAX Theater, a planetarium, The Dallas Aquarium, The Cotton Bowl, an outdoor amphitheater, Music Hall at Fair Park (Broadway shows, ballet, opera), and over one-hundred special events and cultural festivals each year.
