Have you stopped and smelled the roses at the State Fair of Texas? If you did, odds are you were enjoying the work of one of the participants in the State Fair Fall Garden Program.
More than 40 landscaping firms from the across the state design and install beautiful landscaping beds throughout the fairgrounds as part of the State Fair Fall Garden Program. Firms donate their time, materials and expertise to make the State Fair of Texas as beautiful as the state itself. What do landscaping firms get in return? An opportunity for bragging rights! Each year, landscaping design is judged in nine categories, including Best in Show, Most Unique Planting and the President’s Award.
The Fall Garden Program also includes an outdoor sculpture exhibit with more than 20 pieces placed along First Avenue from the lagoon to the Band Shell. Amazing local artists loan the State Fair sculptures so visitors can enjoy and interact with the artwork. A list of artists can be found below.
