Please note: The nightly Mattress Firm Illumination Sensation fireworks show that occurs at 8:00 p.m. has been canceled tonight due to the potential high winds and severe weather forecast.
The safety of fairgoers, employees, and vendors is our number one priority. With the strong likelihood of severe conditions tonight, the Fair will close early as a precaution. The State Fair of Texas will open as scheduled at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, October 11. Parking lots open at 9:00 a.m.
We plan to finish out the Fair in true State Fair of Texas fashion – rain or shine we invite everyone to come out and enjoy the final week of the Fair. We will continue to monitor weather conditions to ensure the safety of our fairgoers, vendors, and employees, and keep everyone informed.
