Some good things eventually come to an end, and for the State Fair of Texas, the end is Oct. 22. If you haven’t gone yet, don’t miss out on all the fun, festivities and food the fair offers. And the best way to reach Fair Park is on DART.
Direct to the fair
Fair Park, located on Parry Avenue at the entrance to the fairgrounds, and MLK, Jr., located south of R.B. Cullum Boulevard and convenient to the Gate 6 entrance and the Cotton Bowl stadium, are your choices on DART’s Green Line.
Connecting is easy
All DART Rail and Trinity Railway Express (TRE) passengers can transfer easily to the Green Line. Trains going to the fair will say “Fair Park,” “Buckner” or “Lawnview.”
Orange Line passengers from Irving transfer to the Green Line at Bachman Station. Southbound Orange, Red and Blue line passengers transfer at Pearl/Arts District or St. Paul stations. Northbound Red and Blue line passengers transfer at Akard Station. TRE passengers transfer to the Green Line at Victory Station. Details are at TrinityRailwayExpress.org.
Customers using the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) should check DCTA.net for departure and arrival times and to ensure smooth connections at Trinity Mills Station to DART’s Green Line. The DCTA will be adjusting their schedules during the fair.
