Fair Park

Built to host the Texas Centennial Exposition in 1936, Fair Park is a historically protected collection of Art Deco buildings housing museums and exhibits. Everybody knows it as the grounds for the Texas State Fair—the annual spectacular is a sight like no other. During that time, Exposition park experiences hundreds of thousands of visitors, especially during the annual Oklahoma-Texas football game at the Cotton Bowl, known as the “Red River Shoot-Out.”

Year-round, people visit the Texas Discovery Gardens, the Music Hall at Fair Park, Gexa Energy Pavilion, The African American Museum, the Children’s Aquarium, and games at the Cotton Bowl.
