The Dance Floor Is Calling

No barn dance would be complete without some country music so get ready to two-step to the toe tapping sounds of Eleven Hundred Springs, a country music band from Dallas. Make sure to arrive early to enjoy our opening musical act, Frankie Leonie, a singer-songwriter out of Denton, Texas. This musical experience will be the highlight of the night and will be a show you won’t find anywhere else.

Not Your Average Barn

A barn dance wouldn’t be complete without a proper barn, but at the State Fair of Texas, we do everything big. For this reason, we’re transforming our historic Livestock Judging Pavilion into a barn fit for partying. A traditional dirt dance floor under the glow of string lights will welcome you to dance and mingle, while hay “couches” line the room to offer a break between songs. Getting to the Livestock Judging Pavilion is easy and parking is free.
