|Join us for an hour-long walking tour of Fair Park on Wednesday, December 20 at noon.
First established for the Dallas State Fair in 1886, Fair Park is one of Dallas' greatest assets
and has been named a National Historic Landmark. In partnership with the Dallas Park
and Recreation Department, the Dallas Center for Architecture presents hour-long
lunchtime walking tours of this Art Deco gem on the third Wednesday of each month.
They are free and open to the public.
In 1936, Fair Park was transformed for the Texas Centennial Exposition. Architect George
Dahl and score of architects and craftsmen created what is today the finest collection of
Art Deco exhibition buildings in the world. On the tour, you'll learn about this process and
the individuals involved, as well as recent and ongoing efforts to preserve and transform
this architectural gem.
The tour begins at noon at the Parry Street entrance gate adjacent to the DART stop.
