Ask anyone what they think of when they think of Texas, and chances are they’ll say, “Cowboys.” This month, two of the biggest cowboys around are throwing two of the biggest shindigs in Texas!
Big Tex welcomes you to the State Fair of Texas in Dallas (Sep 24-Oct 17). Tons of exhibits, a livestock show, great entertainment, and that none-like-it State Fair atmosphere make this event fun for the whole family.
For a savory sampling of cowboy culture, try the Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering & Western Swing Festival (Oct 22-24). Ranch rodeo, chuckwagon cooking, wagon train and trail rides, cowboy music and poetry competitions, and more–right in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. Well worth the trip if you can make it!
And if you can’t, maybe there’s a fair or rodeo in a town near you. No better place to get a taste of Texas!
