More than a decade of decadence.
Since 2005, the State Fair’s Big Tex Choice Awards contest has solidified the annual exposition as the top fair for great food creations.
Each year, State Fair concessionaires fry up tasty and unique foods for a chance to become a finalist in the Big Tex Choice Awards. Everything from Fried Beer to Fried Peaches and Cream have made the cut to become a part of an exclusive club.
Tickets to the Big Tex Choice Awards are now on sale.
Be one of the first people to taste the food made by the finalists at the 11th Annual Big Tex Choice Awards food competition – Sunday, August 30 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available online for just $100, with a limited amount of seats available. The Big Tex Choice Awards will be held in the Tower Building at Fair Park. Don’t miss out on the fun – buy your ticket now before they are gone!
All proceeds from the Big Tex Choice Awards ceremony will be donated to the State Fair of Texas Youth Scholarship Program. Over its 23 year history, the Youth Scholarship Program has provided scholarships to more than 1,600 students for a total of more than $4.5 million.
Bonus! Each Big Tex Choice Awards ticket holder will receive one commemorative 2015 State Fair of Texas cups, good for discounted drinks during the ’15 Fair.Buy Big Tex Choice Awards Tickets
