Top 8 Reasons We’re Excited About the State Fair of Texas

The State Fair of Texas is currently in full swing. It’s an annual tradition and it’s kind of a big deal around these parts. If you’re new to town, you owe it to yourself to check it out. If you’ve lived here for a while and never been… well, you need to fix that! Classic Chevrolet is excited about the State Fair and we’ll tell you exactly why:

Funnel cake on paper plate with powdered sugar

1. The Food

Let’s get this one out of the way first. The State Fair of Texas has some fantastic food options. Famous (or infamous, depending on your viewpoint) for its fried fare, there’s a contest every year for the best original recipe and it produces some wild and ambitious results. There’s also the classic funnel cake, which you can’t skip out on, even if you’ve stuffed yourself all day.

2. The Midway

Are fair rides and games corny? Yeah. Do we care? No! What’s better than triumphing over those notoriously difficult games or braving those questionable looking mechanical monstrosities?

3. Big Tex

Like greeting an old friend, Big Tex stands tall year after year. Not even fire can lay low the friendly giant cowboy. “Howdy, folks. Welcome to the State Fair of Texas!” Thanks, Big Tex, nice to see you too.

Texas Star Ferris Wheel

4. The Ferris Wheel

No view in DFW beats the top of the Ferris Wheel. As iconic as Big Tex, the Ferris Wheel proves that everything is definitely bigger in Texas.

5. The Exhibits

The fair grounds host a number of permanent exhibits year round, and the fair only adds more. From museums to collections on temporary loan, there are plenty of things to see. Don’t forget to view the crafts and art contests!

6. The Live Music

With live music everyday around the fair, there’s always some good listening going on somewhere. And the fair covers all its bases. Whether you’re into country, rock, or rap, there’s something for everyone.

7. The Shopping

If you want to browse goods and shop, you’ll be kept busy at the fair. From items useful and functional to goods that have no purpose whatsoever, there’s no end to the merchants set up all around the fair.

8. The Car Show

The car show is HUGE. There are lots of manufacturers present, including Chevy. We might be a little biased, but the Chevy show has some really nice cars to check out.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

If you see a Chevy at the car show that you fall in love with, make Classic Chevrolet your next stop. You can even give that favored vehicle a proper test drive.

Best Events in DFW You Don’t Want to Miss

Monet: The Early Years

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to view this groundbreaking exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth. Starting October 16, this is the first ever exhibition devoted to the young genius of Claude Monet.

Monet: The Early Years will feature approximately 60 paintings from the first phase of the artist’s career, from his Normandy debut in 1858 until 1872, when he settled in Argenteuil, on the River Seine near Paris. Through the 1860s, the young painter—still in his twenties—absorbed and transformed a variety of influences, as the lessons of the Barbizon school and his mentor Boudin gave way to the challenges posed by his friends Manet, Pissarro, Renoir and Sisley.

The State Fair of Texas

The big event every year in October, the State Fair of Texas is an annual tradition and the biggest, baddest state fair in the U.S. Celebrating 130 years of tradition, the State Fair of Texas returns this fall for another round of food, festivities and family fun. Themed “Celebrating Texas Agriculture,” the 2016 exposition kicked off on Friday, Sept. 30 in historic Fair Park.
