A grand place for a grand event
Grand Place is a 55,000-square-foot exhibition hall. Fashioned after World War II, it stands on the site where the Ford Motor Company had its exhibit during the Texas Centennial Exposition in 1936.
From the 1950s to the 1970s, the building was known as the Women's Building. During that period, it was the home of the State Fair's quilting, cooking and canning competitions.
During the State Fair of Texas, Grand Place becomes a venue for showcasing exhibitors' products and crafts.
You'll find Grand Place just off Grand Avenue ... between the Tower Building and the Leonhardt Lagoon.
