Organizations in Fair Park
More than a place of history and culture, Fair Park facilities also provide office space to five, behind-the-scenes organizations.
These five, independent groups are responsible for much of the programming that keeps Fair Park alive and vibrant ... as well as musical programming that reaches across the airwaves, far beyond Dallas.
You may not easily find them in Fair Park, but you will see – and hear – their presence.
