Fair Park Coliseum is a multi-purpose arena located just east of Downtown Dallas. This iconic facility has been putting on events since the 1950's. The Coliseum consists of a multi-purpose floor that can be transformed to many surfaces for a variety of events. Its flexibility has allowed the facility to host concerts, ice hockey, mixed martial arts, wrestling, speaking engagements, and rodeo events. Additionally, this facility plays a big role in housing events for the 24 day running of the State Fair of Texas each year.
