Parking

Parking is plentiful

Rates for parking inside the Fair Park gates may vary during the State Fair of Texas, concerts and other long-running special events. Parking is also generally available adjacent to Fair Park in privately operating parking lots. Please call (214) 670-8400 if you have any questions.

We always recommend that you:

  • always park in areas designated for parking and, when possible, within Fair Park or State Fair-controlled locations.

  • lock your car, take your keys and hide your belongings.

Vendor Load In

 Vendor load in will be Friday from 10am - 12 Noon. You may start tattooing right away in case you already have an appointment. Doors won't open until 4pm so this leaves us many hours to load in. You must be loaded in on time and stay set up until at least 6pm on Sunday. It is disrespectful to spectators and other artists to break down early. Weekend passes will be sold at a discount to vendors until 4pm when the cost will go up.
