Summer has come to an end, but that does not mean that the outdoor fun is over. It is time again for the East Texas State Fair, happening September 20-29 at The Park of East Texas in Tyler (2112 West Front Street). This year’s festivities promise to deliver some of the area’s best entertainment for family members of all ages.
The top musical acts include country star Aaron Watson on September 21 and classic rock legend Bret Michaels on September 28. Both artists will be hitting the Stonewater Roofing Stage along with La Invasora Conjunto Fest on September 29. (Note: A separate ticket is required for admission to Watson and Michaels.)
In addition to these highlighted artists, fairgoers can also check out Mike & The Moonpies, Holly Tucker, Sabrina Toole, Duelly Noted, David Beck’s Tejano Weekend, The Bluez Boyz, The Tuxedo Cats, The Rock Bottom Boys, Billie Jo, The Darrin Morris Band, and jazz performances from UT Tyler and TJC bands.
But the East Texas State Fair features much more than great live music. Attendees can check out a farm-to-table cooking show, livestock shows, a sea lion show, magic from illusionist Kardenni, and a stunt performance by The Nerveless Nocks. There will also be a petting zoo for kids.
All of this comes free with the price of admission.
Of course, this is accompanied by the standard fair staples such as carnival rides and games, art booths, and a mouthwatering array of foods and craft beers. The event attracts more than 250,000 visitors each year and brings an estimated $9.8 million to the City of Tyler and Smith County.
