About Fair Park
Site of the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition, Fair Park boasts the world's largest collection of Art Deco exhibit buildings, art and sculpture.
Before television – and long before the Internet – world's fairs were a means of introducing the public to new products, new technology and far away places.
In 1936, Texas celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Texas Republic with a world's fair in Dallas. Texas' history, economy, flora and fauna were portrayed in the building, statues and murals designed for the event – all constructed in Art Deco style.
Fair Park is the only intact and unaltered pre-1950s world fair site remaining in the United States – with an extraordinary collection of 1930s art and architecture.
Today, the 277-acre park and its cultural, educational and sports facilities play host to more than seven million annual visitors.
There's plenty of room for you here, too. After all, this is Texas ... where everything's bigger.
And this is Fair Park, where you'll find one fun thing after another.
