Meet some of the groups that call Fair Park home


FAIR PARK IS MORE THAN A PLACE OF HISTORY AND CULTURE. ITS FACILITIES ALSO PROVIDE OFFICE SPACE TO SIX, BEHIND-THE-SCENES ORGANIZATIONS.

These six, independent groups are responsible for much of the programming that keeps Fair Park alive and vibrant. One even provides musical programming that broadcasts across the airwaves to far beyond Dallas.

You may not easily find them in Fair Park. But you will see – and hear – their presence.

Get to know:

  • Friends of Fair Park
    A member-supported advocacy group for Fair Park preservation, restoration and programming.
  • African American Museum
    The only museum in the U.S. Southwest that preserves and displays African American artistic, cultural and historical materials.
  • Dallas Historical Society
    A non-profit organization that encourages historical inquiry into Dallas, Dallas County and North Texas.
  • State Fair of Texas
    Since 1886, this organization has been the driving force behind the annual State Fair.
