With agriculture, education and community involvement at the heart of every decision, the State Fair passionately pursues opportunities to expand and build upon its mission. This year the State Fair of Texas celebrates 130 years of history with the city of Dallas and the great Lone Star State. Originally established as a livestock exposition back in 1886, it is without question that the Fair has deep roots in agriculture. In honor of its history, the Fair constantly strives to promote agricultural education and aims to further support this initiative through its 2016 event, themed “Celebrating Texas Agriculture.” This year’s exposition will run Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 23 at historic Fair Park in Dallas.
