This weekend, the most glorious and outrageous foods, rides, cattle, cars, football games,and crowds will descend on Fair Park to usher in the 2014 Texas State Fair! We couldn’t be more excited, y’all. This event is ALL ABOUT TEXAS. Everywhere you go you will encounter the bigness and (let’s be honest) BESTNESS of the Lone Star State. And yes, we can make up our own words here so y’all just need to let it be.
Upon entering our fairgrounds you will find the warm and welcoming smile of our own Big Tex! Be sure to compliment him on his new outfit and duds, he had a little bit of a wardrobe malfunction last year that
incinerated inspired him to change things up a bit. 😉
If it’s your first time visiting the fair, we suggest looking over the State Fair website and finding a few things on your “Must See” list. Unless you’re able to go multiple times to catch all of the action, chances are you won’t get to see everything. Go in with a game plan to make it a much less overwhelming experience. However, if you find yourself overwhelmed by how amazing and creative and fabulous everything is about Texas, we can’t help you there. That’s just the way it is ’round here, y’all.
As firm believers that Texas always delivers the tastiest to your tastebuds, we recommend that you find time to try as many of the Big Tex Food Finalists as you can! Can you imagine the explosion of flavor when you bite into some Fried Gulf Shrimp Boil? What about washing that down with some Funnel Cake Ale? You can do both this year! Give your tastebuds the time of their life by sampling some of the sweetest and most creative delicacies, native to the Lone Star state!
We’ll be highlighting some favorite Fair events over the next few days so be sure to check back and see what we recommend to give yourself an honest-to-goodness taste of Texas livin’ at the Fair this year!
