Top Ten Reasons to Love the State Fair of Texas

No. 3 Big Tex® Barnyard

Big Tex® Barnyard


Big Tex is not only the icon of the State Fair of Texas®; he also has his own barnyard in the middle of the livestock area.  The Big Tex Barnyard is an educational exhibit that demonstrates how farmers and ranchers produce food to feed the world and how animals are cared for and raised. 

The exhibit is a great way to introduce your family to all the different aspects of agriculture in Texas.  And while you are over at the Cattle Barns, take the opportunity to wander around and support all the participants in the Youth Livestock Shows.  These dedicated students are working to earn scholarships as part of the State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Scholarship Program.
