Description

On every Wednesday of the State Fair of Texas (October 5, 12, 19 and 26), fairgoers can enjoy Sensory-Friendly Mornings, where there will be adjustments made across the fairgrounds to better accommodate those with sensory-related concerns. The Fair created a list of activities and exhibits that are easy on the eyes and ears. Check back closer to the Fair to see the guided itinerary.

In addition, fairgoers will be able to enjoy all the fun of the Midway without the usual lights and sounds from noon–1pm. Please note that the usual lights and sounds of the Midway will return at 1pm. There are also a few locations around the grounds designated as “quiet zones” where families can go throughout their visit should they need to depressurize. These locations will be posted on bigtex.com/sensory closer to the Fair.

The Fair welcomes individuals with autism, their families, and anyone else who may benefit from a sensory-friendly experience. Plus, Wednesday is also the best discount day! Each person who brings five canned food items to donate to North Texas Food Bank will receive $5 admission.
