Creative Arts


Creativity at its Finest!

Whether you’re a seventh-generation Texan or Texan for the day, the State Fair’s Creative Arts department is the perfect place for folks of all ages, beginners to professionals, to showcase their creativity. The year 2020 brought many challenges for all, but because of those challenges, we’ve discovered more opportunities for the year 2021. Creative Arts is divided into four sections: Virtual, Arts & Crafts, Cooking, and the Big Tex BBQ & Chili Challenge. Though we are not able to host the Big TexBBQ & Chili Challenge this year, we cannot wait to see all the creativity you and your family come up with this year for our other three sections! Be sure to sign-up for the Creative Texans Newsletter to stay up-to-date on everything you need to know. Note –the sections have specific handbooks. They will be released throughout the year, with the Virtual Creative Arts Handbook being released first
