Five Can’t Miss Items at the 2018 Texas State Fair

1. The Discounts

Beat the crowds and the prices this year with the It’s a Fair Deal Canned Food Drive! Every Wednesday at the Texas State Fair, bring 4 cans of shelf-stable food and receive a discounted admission of $4.00 sponsored by Kroger! Not only will you have a great day at the fair, but you’ll also be helping to feed our hungry neighbors in North Texas!

2. The Food

While corny dogs and funnel cakes may be your go-to, don’t be afraid to branch out this year! New and award-winning treats you can find on the grounds include Fernie’s Hoppin’ John Cake with Jackpot Sauce by Winter Family Concessions, Arroz con Leche by the Garza Family, and Cotton Candy Tacos by Justin and Rudy Martinez.

3. The Rides

Step right up to one of the 70 rides at the Texas State Fair! Among the most popular attractions at the state fair is the Texas Star Ferris Wheel. Standing at 212 feet, you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Dallas skyline. If you’re more of a thrill seeker, you’re in luck! Just a few of the most popular thrill options include The AirMax, The Flipper, and the Rock it.

4. The Entertainment

There are 24 free concerts at the Texas State Fair this year! Whether you like pop, country, or hip hop, you’re sure to find a show you’ll love. Headliners range from Aaron Watson (October 6 at 8:30 p.m.), Austin Mahone (October 7 at 5:30 p.m.), and Ludacris (October 13 at 8:30 p.m.).

5. Big Tex

You literally can’t miss Big Tex at the Texas State Fair. Standing at 55 feet tall, Big Tex welcomes you to the fair with a friendly, “Howdy, folks!” He’s been a staple since the fair opened more than 60 years ago, and after all, if you don’t get a selfie with Big Tex, did you even go to the fair?

 

We can’t wait to see you at the fair this year!
