Marvin Wilder has been described by his coworkers as the man who does it all and does not overlook the small details. While Marvin started off as a seasonal State Fair employee 16 years ago, this is his sixth year as a full-time employee! As the games maintenance supervisor for the State Fair of Texas, some of Marvin’s duties include prepping the Midway and overseeing the construction of the game stands, but Marvin willingly steps in to help with all aspects of the Fair, regardless of the job description. Marvin truly is the “magic on the grounds,” due to his humble, dependable, and calm nature. Outside of work, you will probably find him spending time with his grandchildren or doing yard work. On behalf of the State Fair Team, we are all thankful for everything that you do and look forward to creating more memories together at the most Texan place on Earth.
