Originally scheduled to close at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, the State Fair of Texas Midway will close early at 9:00 p.m., due to the chance of inclement weather. In addition, the South Texas Homies concert that was scheduled for 8:30 p.m. tonight on the Chevrolet Main Stage is canceled. With the safety of fairgoers, vendors, and employees as our number one priority and the potential for strong storms approaching the DFW metroplex, the Fair will continue to monitor the weather and stay in communication with the National Weather Service.
If severe weather is approaching the fairgrounds ahead of closing, our goal is to notify fairgoers 45 minutes prior to the storm’s arrival to ensure folks have enough time to return to their vehicle safely or take shelter. We encourage everyone to stay weather aware and listen for potential alerts on our outdoor public announcement system, from State Fair officials, and local law enforcement.
Concerts on the Chevrolet Main Stage are FREE with State Fair admission. For a full list of free concerts running until the end of the Fair, Sunday, October 22, please visit BigTex.com/Music.
State Fair operations will continue as scheduled at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, October 5. Parking lots open at 7:00 a.m.
