Every year musicians from all over our great state are booked to perform for eager fairgoers. You can catch artists of all types every single day at one of the fairs three stages. Notable acts this year include American Idol contestant Harper Grace, touring Beatles tribute band Hard Day’s Night and a month-long takeover by Vocal Trash on the Coca Cola Stage.

Learn About Livestock and Agriculture in the Barns
Local agriculture is the soil from which the Texas State Fair was grown. Through agriculture education children and adults alike can learn about the importance and history of farming in Texas. The barns are a great place to see all kinds of livestock that are kept on ranches. You can also take guided tours of the barns to learn a little about each animal from a professional.

With so much going on at the fair every year, it almost feels like going once is never enough! Of all the things to do in DFW, the state fair is one of the most awaited events of the year.
