The 2018 State Fair of Texas is officially open! Lots of schools, families, and groups in Mansfield, TX drive out to the fair in Dallas! The State Fair is always big fun with millions of people in attendance and 24 days of live music, carnival rides, games, livestock, fried food, and exciting exhibits! New to the fair this year is Thrifty Thursdays, where there will be discounts on food favorites like corn dogs and cotton candy on Thursdays! Every year of the State Fair of Texas has a special theme; the theme this year is Celebrating Texas Innovation. Texas-based innovation, inventions, and technology will be highlighted all over the fair. 

Parking and Transportation

The fairgrounds do have official parking, but it usually gets full quickly. Be aware of official signs in the parking lot you choose as towing does occur. If you would rather park and ride to the fair, you can take the green line of Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) right to the fairground’s entrance. Check the website for locations where you can safely park your car before taking the green line the rest of the way.

Special Stuff this Year

There are plenty of live musical acts to catch this year. Along with the live music, you can catch more unique forms of live entertainment like the Cutco Celebrity Chef Kitchen. Each day of the fair, famous Texas chefs will prepare a signature dish, educate the crowd, and do a question and answer segment with the audience. Each of these shows will have free samples!

The fair is fall fun in DFW!
