DALLAS – As the lights and sounds of the Midway come to an end for the 2022 State Fair of Texas, the memories made on the grounds during the Fair this year continue to echo throughout Fair Park. This year’s Fair was filled with exciting new attractions, educational opportunities ranging from a livestock birthing barn to museum exhibits exploring different cultures, live music across three stages, gathering members of the community together through events, and endless amounts of fair food, rides, and family fun. The 2022 State Fair of Texas welcomed nearly 2.5 million people through the gates during its 24-day run.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Fair aims to support the community, both locally and statewide. The proceeds from the Fair are used to preserve and improve Fair Park; underwrite community initiatives, support scholarship programs for students throughout the Lone Star State pursuing higher education, and Fair Park’s museums; and help improve State Fair operations. The annual State Fair of Texas serves as the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year – a successful 24-day run for the Fair means more support for Fair Park and the surrounding community.
