Celebrating 133 years of tradition in the fall, the State Fair of Texas® will return for another season of food, festivities, and family fun. Themed “CELEBRATING TEXAS CREATIVITY,” this year’s exposition kicks off on Friday, September 27 in historic Fair Park. With planning for the big event fully underway, the State Fair team is prepping to bring you more fun and entertainment than ever before. Adding to its annual offering of more than 100 free attractions, 70 Midway rides, and endless activities across the fairgrounds, the State Fair is excited to announce several new attractions lined up for the 2019 event.

They’re back! After a sixyear hiatus, a fairgoer favorite is coming out of retirement to return to the State Fair of Texas. “WORLD OF BIRDS SHOW PRESENTS: SOAR!” Steve Martin and his stunning array of birds from all across the globe have flown out of retirement and nested back into the historic Fair Park Band Shell for an all-new, highflying adventure. With a cast of new species, as well as memorable feathered friends, “SOAR!” brings the aviary world up-close to the audience with bird releases from the Texas Star Ferris wheel and flyovers just inches from guests’ heads. “SOAR!” is also filled with a wealth of knowledge regarding bird health, habitat information, and conservation efforts taking place across the world. Experience the spectacular show daily at the Band Shell.
