Saddle Up Texas!
The State Fair of Texas recently announced its plans to resume face-to-face operations this year, after the cancelation of last year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event will begin Friday, Sept. 24, and run through Oct. 17 at Fair Park in Dallas. Although CDC guidelines are constantly changing, fair officials said they will adhere to all applicable rules and standards, including any that are enforced by the local, state, or federal government.
According to ABC 13, State Fair of Texas president Mitchell Glieber said, “this year's commemorative theme art encompasses the foundation of what the Fair is all about - being together. None of us could have predicted all that the COVID-19 pandemic would bring with it, but we feel so grateful to carry on the State Fair's 135-year history and welcome everyone back with a warm, 'Howdy, Folks!,' this year. We're excited to make up for lost time and help families and friends from all walks of life reconnect again while making new memories to last a lifetime.”
Throughout the 24 day affair, there will be a total of 77 performances which are free concerts that all attendees can enjoy. The first day will kick off with Clay Walker at 8:30 p.m. and the last day will conclude with a performance by The Last Bandoleros at 3:00 p.m.
