The COVID-19 pandemic took a lot of fun events away from us in 2020 including the State Fair of Texas. That meant we didn't get to enjoy some fantastic fair food, some great concerts, some great rides, some great exhibits and so much more. The announcement has gone out as of today that the State Fair of Texas will be back for 2021 in all it's glory.
