Even though it’s six months away, the State Fair of Texas has already announced its 2019 theme: “Celebrating Texas Creativity.”
The theme is an ode to the creativity that produces everything on the fairgrounds.
“This year’s theme celebrates something that plays an ongoing role throughout every corner of the Fair,” says Mitchell Glieber, State Fair of Texas President. “Creativity produces everything you see on the fairgrounds each year - new exhibits and shows, ribbon-winning entries in Creative Arts, and one-of-a-kind Fair food. Outside of Fair season, it influences growth in our year-round initiatives, like the hydroponic growing systems added in Big Tex Urban Farms, creating workshops and capacity-building programming with local organizations, and fundraising events supporting the Big Tex Scholarship Program.”
The theme art is inspired by the many patchwork quilts entered into the fair's creative arts competitions.
This year's fair runs from Friday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 20 in Fair Park.
