Our Mission

Restoring, revitalizing and renewing Fair Park, a 277-acre National Historic Landmark, to attract people from across the region and entire country.

Restore. Revitalize. Renew.

Our Pillars of Success

It is our priority to re-establish Fair Park as one of Dallas’ premiere venues accessible and enjoyed by all. We’re focused on restoring the energy of Fair Park by bringing events year-round to the Fairgrounds. Along with our event activation partners, Spectra, we are working to fill Fair Park’s calendar by creating a fun and family-friendly environment that plays host to events of all kinds for people of all ages.

In addition to bringing more events, awareness and revenue, we’re committed to building community. Working closely with and giving back to our South Dallas neighbors will make the future of Fair Park that much brighter. That future involves creating job opportunities for South Dallas/Fair Park residents, building a new neighborhood park, creating local youth internship programs, and working with other local organizations and events that enhance the Fair Park experience.

Cultural institutions have always called Fair Park home, and we help them flourish. We love our friends at the African American Museum, Dallas Summer Musicals, Texas Discovery Gardens, and are looking to bring new, innovative organizations to Fair Park. Businesses and institutions of all kinds are welcome, as long as you share a common vision and fresh ideas for how we can make Fair Park a better place.

Because Fair Park is a National Historic Landmark it is our duty to uphold the integrity of Fair Park and update as needed to make it a premier destination once again. Everything we do is done with great sensitivity to Fair Park’s legacy, ensuring that we are building upon that legacy and creating something great for future generations to enjoy.
