Texas State Fair

Where: Dallas

When: September to October

Over 2.5 million people are present each year in Dallas for its annual Big Tex, the country’s biggest state fair. We already know that everything is bigger in Texas, and this state fair goes to great lengths to show off the Lone Star State’s extraordinary flair.

As its signature skyline marker, the Texas Star Ferris Wheel delivers extensive views, rising above the concession stands and grandstands at a whopping 212 feet.

The state’s best magicians, musicians, and animal wranglers give it their all and put on around 100 live performances each day. There’s even a “Big Tex Choice Awards,” honoring the very finest in all that deliciously fried dining.

From Fried Thanksgiving Dinner to fried peaches and cream, this state fair proves ANYTHING can go into a deep fryer.
