10 Reasons to Visit the State Fair of Texas

No. 3 Fair Food and Texas Beer

Fair Food and Texas Beer 

There are few things better at the State Fair of Texas than the newest fried food item hot and crispy from the fryer and a cold Texas craft beer. Whether you like the new foods or stick with the classics, fair fare does not disappoint. The tastes and smells are only something you can get this fall at the State Fair of Texas.

There’s no shortage of new food items from the amazing finalists of the annual Big Tex Choice Awards, the culinary competition that brought the world Fried Coke and Funnel Cake Ale. Be sure to pick up a Big Tex Choice Awards map from a State Fair information booth to help you navigate your way to hunger-pleasing goodness.

New for 2015! The State Fair of Texas is proud to introduce Thrifty Thursdays. Each Thursday during the Fair, select concessionaires will offer smaller portions of food favorites at an even smaller price. Each Thrifty Thursday item will cost between 3 and 6 coupons.

While on the grounds, you’ll have to have some great Texas suds to wash down all the amazing food (21 and up, of course). Be sure to check out the Magnolia Beer Garden for a wide selection of Texas craft beers. While you’re there, try “Funnel Cake Ale,” last year’s winner of Most Creative in the Big Tex Choice Awards.
