2014 State Fair of Texas

Kevin Brown/State Fair of Texas

Even if you weren’t born in Texas, the State Fair of Texas will make you feel like a native in no time.

Since 1886, crowds have flocked to historic Fair Park in Dallas each fall to celebrate the best of Texas culture. The 2014 fair is jam-packed with a schedule of college football (Texas-OU on Oct. 11), live music (headliners include Kool & the Gang and Collective Soul), dance performances, a carnival midway, livestock and auto shows, art, and shopping. And we’d be remiss not to mention the world-famous fried food—worth a visit in itself. Sep. 26-Oct. 19. Call 214/565-9931.
