Embarcadero Building

From the Spanish word for "a place from which to embark"


EXHIBITING PRODUCTS FROM THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

The Embarcadero Building offers 27,000 square feet of exhibit space that a wide variety of retailers use to showcase their products during the State Fair of Texas.

The pavilion debuted in 1936 as part of the Texas Centennial Exposition. At that time, it was known as the Food Exhibit Building. Architecturally, it is a mirror-image twin of the nearby Food & Fiber Pavilion.

In 2008, murals on the building designed by Italian artist Carlos Ciampaglia underwent painstaking renovation. One painting is a monumental rendering of Mother Nature.

WHERE IS IT?
