Visit the new Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center

55,000-square-foot facility to meet growing needs of State Fair agriculture, education programs


Earlier this month, we opened the Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center which we are proud to showcase to visitors attending this year’s State Fair of Texas.

The 55,000-square foot venue is available for year-round use as we continue to expand our programming and premiere events. The second floor of the Center provides meeting space as well as ballroom and banquet hall space. This amazing new facility offers exciting opportunities for meetings, conventions, and significant gatherings for groups across the metroplex.

Named in honor John W. Carpenter, Sr., former president of Texas Power and Light; Dolph Briscoe, Jr., former two term Governor of Texas; and Ben W. Carpenter, prominent Dallas businessman and rancher, the new Center recognizes and extends their profound impact on agriculture in Texas.

In addition to the City of Dallas and the State Fair of Texas, major donors include: Cele and John W. Carpenter, III; the Harold Simmons Foundation; the Stemmons Foundation; Errol McKoy; and Jim Prewitt.

We hope you will take time to visit the new Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center while you are at the State Fair.

See you at Fair Park soon.
