Because what’s the State Fair without all the adorable animals? With a State Fair of Texas Season Pass, you’re bound to make a new furry friend. Welcoming a new Livestock Birthing Barn, you can experience the miracle of life for 24-days—just think you could be the first ‘Howdy’ to a piglet! Not to mention, Home on the Range is the perfect spot to enjoy air-conditioned petting zoo with all your favorite animals.
#3–Watch 24 Starlight Parades from 24 different locations on the grounds.
The nightly parade makes its way through the grounds each night beginning at 7:15 p.m. There are tons of great vantage points but a few of the best are:
- Along the Lagoon across from Cotton Bowl Plaza
- In front of the Band Shell
- At the State Fair Wine Garden
- The steps of the Hall of State
- Big Tex Circle
#2—Participate in or watch a different cooking contest each day in the Creative Arts Competition Kitchen.
Are you brave enough to face the Community Coffee Competition Kitchen, or would you rather sit back and watch the blue ribbons awarded to the State Fair best tastings? With a different competition each day, things always get heated in the kitchen. Don’t miss out on all the action. Find all the competitions at BigTex.com/creativearts or be sure to stop by each morning as a Season Pass holder to watch!
#1—24 Days of #BigTex Selfies.
One photo with the legendary #BigTex is just never enough, so why would you miss out on 24 days of opportunities? Especially when your photo could be showcased as “Picture of the Day” on the State Fair of Texas’ social media. Let’s get creative and #BigTex!
