State Fair of Texas® Offers Children a World of Fun


The State Fair of Texas® offers entertainment for the youngest of fairgoers. Children can get a taste of farm life as they mingle with animals at Big Tex’s Farmyard and the Children’s Health Barnyard. They also can learn about how farms prepare food at the Little Hands on the Farm.

Every night at 7:15 p.m., children and their families can enjoy the Starlight Parade, showcasing a lighted procession of floats, live music, costumes and characters.

Other children’s events scheduled during the fair include the Backyard Circus at the The Oak Farms Children’s Activity Center, the Kids’ Pedal Tractor Pulls for children ages 4-12 and the Pee Wee Stampede and Rodeo that allows children to compete in mock-rodeo events.

Admission for children under 48” is $14 and free for children under the age of 3. Fairgoers can save $2 off the price of admission by purchasing their tickets on DART’s GoPass℠ app.

Setting up your GoPass℠ account in advance to saves time. You can pre-purchase both your DART passes and your State Fair of Texas® tickets on your phone, but DON’T activate them until the day you plan to use them.
