State Fair of Texas – Opening Weekend Walk & Group Visit. Hosted by Robert Kelleman – Dallas-Texas History & Culture

The State Fair of Texas is one of our biggest annual events. Let’s go see “Big Tex” and friends in person. We can take a leisurely group walk through the grounds and get some steps in while exploring the sites and sounds. All are welcome to attend.

For now this is a “save-the-date” posting with more specific details when we get closer to the event date.


2022 is looking bright! This year, the State Fair of Texas is celebrating 136 years of Texan pride and we’re busy preparing one heck of a safe and festive shindig in the fall. All of your favorite Fair time traditions will be returning, including a huge “Howdy Folks!” from the iconic 55-foot cowboy himself, Big Tex. Check back soon for more details on the all the tasty fried food, thrilling rides, and one-of-a-kind shows at the 2022 State Fair of Texas!

The State Fair of Texas is an annual state fair held in Dallas at historic Fair Park. The fair has taken place every year since 1886 except for varying periods during World War I and World War II as well as 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It usually begins the last Friday in September and ends 24 days later. The fair claims an annual attendance of over two million visitors through ticket scanning. The State Fair of Texas is considered one of the best in America as well as Dallas’ signature event.
