Fair Park
website

Every year, just two miles east of downtown Dallas, Fair Park hosts one of the largest state fairs in the United States: a Texas-sized affair that welcomes well more than two million visitors. Attendees find fried "fair food" favorites like corn dogs, funnel cakes, and turkey legs much to their liking as they tour the large exhibition halls, which are filled with award-winning art, produce, and crafts. This annual bonanza is also known for icons like the 52-foot-tall cowboy and the 212-foot Ferris wheel. The State Fair of Texas usually starts the last Friday of September and lasts until late October, coinciding with college football's legendary Red River Rivalry game, which pits the Oklahoma Sooners against the Texas Longhorns at Fair Park's Cotton Bowl Stadium.
