For the first time in its 134-year history, the State Fair of Texas is proud to introduce the Big Tex Fair Food Drive-Thru. This one-of-a-kind drive-thru experience will celebrate all things Texan – giving you the opportunity to get your annual photo with Big Tex and a taste of the Fair while supporting the State Fair of Texas’s nonprofit mission.
Get ready to visit the most Texan place on earth and get your fair food fix during select weekends in September and October, with all tickets pre-sold in three entry windows to best serve the Drive-Thru guests.
Keeping everyone healthy and safe is the number one priority that even the iconic Big Tex will do his part as a good neighbor and sport a Big Tex-sized face mask. In a year of many firsts, this historic event will offer Fair lovers the opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime photo and experience.
Fair Food & Photo Packages are available for the following dates:
* Friday, September 25 through Sunday, September 27, 2020.
* Friday, October 2 through Sunday, October 4, 2020.
* Friday, October 9 through Monday, October 12, 2020 excluding Saturday, October 10, due to the AT&T Red River
Showdown football game.
* Thursday, October 15 through Sunday, October 18, 2020.
Just want your annual photo with Big Tex? Join us on September 19 – 20 for a photo-only Drive–Thru experience. The photo-only activation will operate from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with all tickets pre-sold in three entry windows to reduce wait times at Big Tex Circle.
Proceeds will support State Fair of Texas operations and the North Texas Food Bank to help feed our community in need.
