For just eighth time in the fair’s 134-year history, the State Fair of Texas has been canceled.
The fair made the announcement on their website Tuesday morning.
“With a heavy heart, we are announcing that the State Fair of Texas will not open for the 2020 season. We believe the spirit of the Lone Star state lies in every Texan’s ability to care and look out for their neighbor and it is with this in mind, we have decided to keep our guests, staff, and partners safe and healthy during these uncertain time. We look forward to giving y’all a great big Howdy in 2021.”
For those who have already purchased season tickets to the State Fair of Texas, they can secure refunds via the Fair’s website. Fortunately, it looks like Big Tex is planning to make a major comeback in 2021.
