About the 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 – all constructed in Art Deco style.

Fair Park is the only intact and unaltered pre-1950s world fair site remaining in the United States – with an extraordinary collection of 1930s art and architecture.

Today, the 277-acre park and its cultural, educational and sports facilities play host to more than seven million annual visitors.
