Texas State Fair Hotel
The State Fair of Texas® is an annual event that takes place in Fair Park in September and October. The State Fair features football games, concerts, livestock and auto shows, and some of the most creative fried foods you will ever find. The State Fair of Texas is the largest state fair in the country by attendance, attracting more than 3 million visitors annually over the three weeks of the event. Not surprisingly, the big attractions of today are the same as they were over 100 years ago when the fair began. Fair Park is home to the fair and is located east of I-30, and is only a 5 minute drive from the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. DART rail service will also be available for guest traveling to Fair Park. DART rail runs throughout Dallas, and there is a stop in front of the Sheraton Downtown Hotel.
Other must see attractions include: the Texas Star, North America's largest Ferris wheel, as well as a variety of free music concerts and Big Tex, a 52 ft. tall animatronic cowboy, waiting to greet you upon arrival.
