Big Texas Music Exhibit

Honoring well-known Texas artists, the “Big Texas Music” exhibit includes memorabilia, audiovisual displays and social interactive pieces, as well as daily live music performances from a wide variety of artists. The exhibit features both artists who were born in Texas and those who have lived here and consider themselves natives. Spanning numerous decades, “Big Texas Music” showcases famous Texas musicians from every genre, celebrating the diverse range of talent hailing from the Lone Star State. Open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Hall of State.
Little Hands on The Farm
Presented by Ag-Power, Walmart and WFAA-TV.
Kids love this fun and interactive exhibit where they learn how food gets from farm to table. Activities on this miniature farm include planting seeds, gathering eggs and driving a tiny tractor before harvesting crops and taking them to market. With the earnings from sold crops, snacks can be purchased in the General Store. Suitable for toddlers to eight years old. Open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. near the Livestock area.
Annual State Fair Classic: Prairie View A&M vs. Grambling State
The classic showdown began in the 1940s and has been played at Fair Park annually since the 1980s. As the largest social event of the year for both schools, the game attracts approximately 65,000 fans to Dallas. Just as exciting to watch is the halftime extravaganza, termed a “battle of the bands.” The Grambling State Marching Band and the Prairie View A&M Marching Storm both merge jaw-dropping precision and dynamic dance moves. The result – a flashy but fantastic halftime like nothing you have ever seen before.
