The State Fair of Texas celebrates all things Texan by promoting agriculture, education and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly setting.
In its 133rd year, the State Fair of Texas runs from September 27 - October 20, 2019. Volunteer opportunities include Military Appreciation Day (Sept 27) and the Youth Livestock Committee for the run of the fair. Additionally, our development campaigns offer year-round opportunities for volunteers to serve on our fundraising events: Big Tex Clay Shoot Classic, Big Tex Golf Classic, Big Tex Champion Club, Big Tex Barn Dance Social and Youth Livestock Auction Day!
100% of all proceeds from the Fair's development initiatives go to support youth in the Fair Park community and across the State. We currently support 501 Big Tex Scholars all of whom attend Texas colleges and universities.
