Fair Park

Before television – and long before the internet – world’s fairs were a means of introducing the public to new products, new technology and far away places. In 1936, Texas celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Texas Republic with a world’s fair in Dallas. Texas’ history, economy, flora and fauna were portrayed in the building, statues, and murals designed for the event. Fair Park is the only intact and unaltered pre-1950s world fair site remaining in the United States. Today, the 277-acre park and its cultural, educational, and sports facilities play host to more than seven million annual visitors.
