After approval from local government, the 2020 North Texas Fair and Rodeo will take place October 16th through the 24th. The health and safety of our fairgoers, volunteers, participants and community is our highest priority. In order to provide the nine-nights of cutting-edge country music, first-class rodeos, livestock shows, and family attractions that we are known for in the safest environment possible we will be following all local and state mandates in regards to COVID-19.

After diligent planning and consideration, we have assembled a COVID-19 safety plan that will help us preserve the safety as well as the fun of this annual event. The North Texas State Fair Association will continue to collaborate with medical professionals, watch for any new developments around COVID-19 that would impact the fair operation, and make modifications accordingly.
