What People Say

  • David Bush and Jim Parsons

    Authors, Fair Park Deco

    "Fair Park is one of the finest collections of Deco architecture in the country, but it is so much more: the embodiment of Texan swagger, it is a testament to the Texanic task of creating a dazzling spectacle in the darkest days of the Depression."

  • Texas State Historical Association

    The authority on Texas history since 1897

    "Fair Park houses one of the greatest concentrations of early twentieth-century Art Deco exposition buildings in the United States."

  • American Planning Association

    Great Places in America

    "For more than a century the park, two miles east of downtown Dallas, has been delighting millions of visitors. Attractions on its 277 acres include eight museums, six performance facilities, and a major sports stadium."

  • National Geographic Traveler

    "Fair Park is much more than an assemblage of buildings; it’s a district telling dozens of stories from dozens of cultures."
