Community Involvement

Proud to serve our community

As a long-standing Dallas institution, the State Fair of Texas has a unique appreciation for the local support that makes such a big event possible every year. The Fair aims to give back through our partnerships with local organizations and initiatives, while expanding outreach programs and placing a special priority on promoting community involvement. Our impact focuses on three areas that complement our mission – social capital, human capital, and financial capital.

Community Resources

Supporting Through Grants & Sponsorships

As a neighbor in the South Dallas/Fair Park community, we are committed to supporting nonprofit organizations that are providing services in this area. We understand that these organizations, like ours, depend on year-round generosity from citizens, volunteers, corporations, and other nonprofit organizations. In order to extend our hand to the members of our community that are bringing about positive change, the State Fair of Texas offers grants and sponsorships to local nonprofit organizations at specific times throughout the year.
