The State Fair of Texas Announces Its 2021 Return.

Mark your calendars! After a year-long hiatus, The State Fair of Texas announced its return with a brand new theme “Howdy Folks!”

Starting Sept. 24 through Oct. 17, park-goers are able to experience the activities such as the food, rides and games, and live music.

“This year’s commemorative theme art encompasses the foundation of what the Fair is all about – being together,” said Mitchell Glieber, State Fair of Texas president. “None of us could have predicted all that the COVID-19 pandemic would bring with it, but we feel so grateful to carry on the State Fair’s 135-year history and welcome everyone back with a warm, ‘Howdy, Folks!,’ this year. We’re excited to make up for lost time and help families and friends from all walks of life reconnect again, while making new memories to last a lifetime.”
