Since its establishment in 1886, the State Fair of Texas has promoted Texas agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment. This year, the State Fair of Texas is proud to welcome the country legend Billy Ray Cyrus to the stage. Check it out this Sunday, October 13th beginning at 8:30 p.m.!
Starting his career off in 1992, Billy Cyrus' first album, Some Gave All, debuted on the Billboard charts at No. 1 and stayed there for 17 weeks. His first single release, a simple two-chord song with one verse and chorus called “Achy Breaky Heart,” turned into a worldwide phenomenon that topped charts around the globe and made a superstar out of a boy from Flatwoods.
The multi-million selling country single helped launch the '90s line dance craze and was undoubtedly one of the catchiest, polarizing, history-making songs in the entire country music genre. He has since dabbled in other music genres, including his most recent viral hit with rapper Lil Nas X, “Old Town Road.”
At 24 consecutive days, the State Fair of Texas is the longest-running fair in the nation, as well as one of the largest. Through its rich and lengthy history, it remains evident that the State Fair serves not only as an annual celebration but as a unique destination that brings people from all walks of life together to create lifelong memories. As a nonprofit organization, the Fair advocates for the community and is committed to preserving Fair Park – building on its legacy as a National Historic Landmark.
Texas heritage is strong, and the State Fair embodies all aspects of Lone Star culture. Although much has changed since its humble beginnings, the State Fair of Texas still embraces its roots and preserves the traditions upon which it was built. Year after year millions of Fair Park visitors come from far and wide to experience the State Fair of Texas and visit its beloved icon, Big Tex.
