State Fair of Texas

Next: Today 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

Fair Park


As a celebration of Texas heritage, the State Fair aims to embody all aspects of Lone Star culture. Although much has changed since its humble beginnings as a local fair and exposition, the State Fair of Texas embraces its historical roots and strives to preserve the traditions upon which it was built.

After a year hiatus, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the time-honored tradition is returning in all its Lone Star glory on Friday, September 24. It has been nearly two years since we closed the gates and said so long after the 2019 State Fair, and with more anticipation for fall than ever before, we are counting the days until we welcome back people from all walks of life with a great, big, "Howdy, Folks!" at the 2021 State Fair of Texas.

Mark your calendars for the 2021 State Fair of Texas and say "howdy" right back to Big Tex starting September 24 through October 17 at historic Fair Park in Dallas. Season passes are now on sale at More information on ticketing for the 2021 Fair will be available in the coming months as we approach Opening Day.
