For back-to-back years, the State Fair of Texas has recorded the highest attendance amongst the fairs and festivals industry, leading Carnival Warehouse’s Top 50 List with more than 2.5 million people in attendance for the 2022 exposition. It’s true; everything really is bigger in Texas – and not just in Dallas. Our neighbors and friends at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo joined us atop the list at #2, with more than 2.4 million people in attendance for their 2022 event.
As a nonprofit organization, the State Fair of Texas’ mission is to celebrate all things Texan by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment. A Big Tex-sized thank you to all 2,547,289 folks who visited us during the 24-day run of the 2022 State Fair of Texas, allowing us to focus on our mission-giving the other 341 days of the year.
