Every year, Hispanic Heritage Month and the State Fair of Texas coincide. And that’s fitting, since the Hispanic heritage of many Texans has shaped and enrichened our state in so many ways. Get on the Green Line, get to the State Fair, and get your fill of Hispanic heritage along with corndogs and Midway rides. As always, DART is the best way to get there. Don’t forget to download our free GoPass® app. It’s the most convenient way to get your transit pass.
At the Women’s Museum, check out Mundo Latino: “Día de los Muertos”, which explores the rich history and cultural significance of the Day of the Dead. Along with art installations, there is live music and – of course – face painting.
¡Fiestas de Marionetas! is a delight for kids and adults alike: a miniature village of more than 85 handmade marionettes that come to life. It’s a fiesta of color, culture, and creativity, featuring beautiful lights and landscaping. There are daily performances next to the Magnolia Beer Garden.
When you hit the State Fair of Texas this year, be sure to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month! To see a complete listing of the fair’s offerings, click here.
