‼️UPDATE‼️ Howdy! 🤠 Now that Big Tex is back up at Fair Park, we have updates to share about park hours and public access during this time. As you may have heard, the State Fair of Texas is hosting several alternative events this year at Fair Park. During these events, and similar to when the State Fair of Texas occurs during normal years, the park will be closed to non-ticketed guests. However, we know there are Fair Park and other DFW neighbors who enjoy using Fair Park for walks, exercise, bike rides, walking pets, visiting museums and facilities, etc. To safely accommodate our guests between now and October 18, the public may visit the park by entering at Gate 5 from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. on non-State Fair event operating days. For a full update on our gates and operating hours, please visit the link in our bio. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.
THANK YOU! Your donations to Fair Park First for North Texas Giving Day will help us in our mission to put the 'park' back into Fair Park. We set a goal of $15,000, and through your North Texas Giving Day donations and other support, we were able to secure $35,000. We're happy to share that over $175,000 was raised in total for all of the Resident Institutions at Fair Park! This includes the African American Museum of Dallas, Dallas Historical Society, Dallas Summer Musicals, Friends of Fair Park, SPARK, State Fair of Texas, Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park, and WRR 101. Your generous support will make a meaningful difference at this crown jewel! Please stay tuned as we continue to roll out the 2020 Fair Park Master Plan Update over the next couple of months. #FairParkYourPark #NTxGivingDay @fairparkfirst

A study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health found that greater use of parks helps to reduce Type 2 diabetes, lower body weight, reduce symptoms of depression, and enhance psychological well-being.

In March of this year, the live events and convention industry began a complete shutdown. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, 77% of the people in our industry lost 100% of their income, 96% of event companies cut staff, and thousands of events have been canceled nationwide. Tonight, we are lighting Cotton Bowl Stadium at Fair Park red for #WeMakeEvents and #RedAlertRESTART. You can support too, by posting a red photo of you at your favorite event and by visiting www.wemakeevents.org to learn more. #wemakeevents #RedAlertRESTART #extendpua #saveourstages
