Fair Park Walking Tour

The Dallas Center for Architecture will conduct a free, one-hour walking tour of Fair Park at noon on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

First established for the Dallas State Fair in 1886, Fair Park is one of Dallas’ greatest assets and has been named a National Historic Landmark. In partnership with the Dallas Park and Recreation Department, the Dallas Center for Architecture presents hour-long lunchtime walking tours of this Art Deco gem on the third Wednesday of each month. They are free and open to the public.
