A tradition since 1886, the State Fair of Texas has something for everyone.
The Texas flag is often is called the Lone Star Flag because of its single star. This was also the flag of the Republic of Texas.
Created in the 1880s in Waco, Texas, Dr. Pepper soda is a Texas tradition. “I’ve always maintained you cannot tell anyone what Dr Pepper tastes like because it’s so different. It’s not an apple, it’s not an orange, it’s not a strawberry, it’s not a root beer, it’s not even a cola. It’s a different kind of drink with a unique taste all its own.” — Charles Alderton, inventor
Each year, the Texas State Fair fries up tasty and unique foods. Everything from Fried Beer to Fried Peaches & Cream have been served.
- French Onion Crepettes
- Corn Pup Bites
- Jack Rabbit Tea Sammies
Candy Apple Scones with Peach Preserves
Blue ribbon tea fit for Texas? Why, it’s our BIG TEX ENGLISH BREAKFAST of course. BIG TEX has been the mascot of the fair since 1952. In late 2012, Big Tex caught on fire, burning it down to the skeletal frame. He was back greeting guests in no time flat.
ELVIS PRETZEL STICKS
Elvis Presley performed the fair in 1956. In 2005, the Fried Peanut Butter, Jelly
and Banana Sandwich is introduced.
MINI FERRIS WHEEL CENTERPIECES for the cocktail tables and fresh farm arrangements for guests. The 212-foot Texas Star Ferris wheel has been
