Air-conditioned bar will sell local beer during State Fair
Head to the Texas Discovery Gardens.
FAIR PARK When the State Fair of Texas opens September 27 through October 20 in Dallas, attendees will find a new beer garden in partnership with Texas Discovery Gardens and Four Corners Brewing Company. With three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, the Grand Hall ballroom in the gardens will host the brewery as well as locally-owned restaurants for a cool respite from the (likely) humid Midway.
"September in Texas usually means heat or rain," said Sarah Gardener, PR and marketing manager for Texas Discovery Gardens. "Three of the ballroom's walls are covered in glass and look into the gardens, which creates a nice atmosphere while also providing a break from outdoor temperatures."
"We want to bolster local companies that emphasize garden fresh lifestyles," Gardener said. "It goes hand-in-hand with our mission to promote sustainable and natural lifestyles for our guests by educating them on ways to create more natural worlds at home."
Items like local honey from Bolsa Mercado will be available for purchase.
Music and entertainment will be provided by Dallas' own ArtLoveMagic, and each day will feature activities such as garden tours, butterfly tagging, art shows and lectures. Guests can also check out the current exhibit Snakesss of Texasss! -- featuring a fearsome albino rattlesnake -- in the TDG snake shack.
Admission is half off during the State Fair of Texas: Adults are $4, seniors (60-plus) are $3 and children 3-11 are $2. Cost does not include food and drink purchases.
