State Fair of Texas
September 28 - October 21, 2018
Celebrating 132 years of tradition in the fall, the State Fair of Texas will return for another season of food, festivities, and family fun. This year’s exposition kicks off on Friday, September 28 and runs through Sunday, October 21 in historic Fair Park. Themed “CELEBRATING TEXAS INNOVATION,” the State Fair commemorates the significant Texans and Texas innovations that have helped influence our current way of life and pave the way for the next era of pioneers. From America’s first self-contained modern shopping center, stadium nachos, iconic corn chips, the frozen margarita machine, handheld calculators, to even Corny Dogs, several of the world’s favorite creations were introduced right here in the Lone Star State.
Adding to its annual offering of more than 100 free attractions, 70 Midway rides, and endless activities across the fairgrounds, the 2018 State Fair of Texas will be a celebration bigger than ever! From the Fair’s newest attractions like “Home on the Range” and the Livestock Birthing Barn, to fairgoer favorites like the pig races and the Texas Star Ferris wheel, this season will be filled with never-ending fun.
Free with fairgoers’ admission, the Chevrolet Main Stage concert lineup features a wide variety of musical acts across all genres, including performances by Aaron Watson, Ludacris, Austin Mahone, Michael Salgado, and so much more! Your trip to the Fair is your ticket to Texas-sized fun – with hundreds of activities included in the price of admission, you’ve got an all-access pass to free entertainment.
