Every year, in the lead up to “Howdy, Folks,” the State Fair hosts several horse shows in the Coliseum (located just east of the Cotton Bowl Stadium) and Livestock Judging Pavilion, both located on the Fair Park grounds.

Horse shows including barrel races, team roping, Arabian shows and more events take place every weekend starting in August and will run through mid-September. All horse shows are free to the public and are fun entertainment for the entire family.

Times and locations vary, so check out the weekly schedule for more information. Start and end times may vary depending on how many participants in each event.

The State Fair of Texas returns September 29 – October 22.
