Go early. Stay late. Ride DART.
“Fair Day” is a long-held tradition in Dallas. The Dallas Independent School District closes its schools so that students and staff may attend the State Fair of Texas.
This year, DISD Secondary School Fair Day is Friday, Oct. 19. Families and students going to the fair should note that the State Fair will close the pedestrian admission gates at 8:30 p.m. that day. This means if you are attending the State Fair on Oct. 19, you need to arrive at Fair Park before 8:30 p.m.
Exhibit buildings will close at 9 p.m. The State Fair’s official closing time is 10 p.m.
State Fair visitors can ride the DART Rail Green Line to two stations – Fair Park Station, located the main entrance to the fairgrounds, and MLK, Jr. Station, located close to the Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard entrance (Gate 6).
