Little Hands on The Farm
Presented by Ag-Power, Walmart and WFAA-TV.

The state-of-the-art greenhouse features unique landscape creations and attractions like the Texas Garden Railway, as well as entertainment such as the Tree Man Stilt Walker and pumpkin-carving master Farmer Mike. Open 10 a.m to 7 p.m.
Chevrolet Ride and Drive

Here they come, snout-to-snout, down the stretch, back by popular demand! The Pan-Am Arena is home to the most-talked-about track in town; the pig races. Dressed in fetching racing silks, the wiggly piglets run the course three times a day. Don’t miss this fan favorite! Shows at 6, 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. in the Pan-American Arena.
Celebrity Chef Kitchen
Presented by Cutco.
For those of you looking for a true culinary experience, the State Fair recommends attending one of its daily Celebrity Chef demos, where popular chefs from some of Texas’ most prominent restaurants show off their skills in the Creative Arts Building. Chefs prepare a signature dish, share tips and answer audience questions, also giving audience members a chance to sample their culinary creations at the end of each demonstration. With four to five demonstrations from different chefs every day, fairgoers get to explore the diverse culinary establishments available in our local landscape. See the daily calendar for specific times.
