SPIRIT OF THE CENTENNIAL AWARD

The Spirit of the Centennial Award is presented annually by

the Friends of Fair Park to individuals or organizations who

have demonstrated outstanding service and commitment to

Fair Park. The award draws its name from the beloved statue

in Fair Park, designed by Raoul Josset in 1936 to celebrate

the Texas Centennial. The most recent recipient was Mayor Mike Rawlings for his continued support of Fair Park.


We are currently planning the 2020 award ceremony.


Some very happy puppies at Dog Bowl

DOG BOWL AT THE COTTON BOWL

Spoil your four-legged fur ball with an afternoon of doggy delights inside Fair Park’s Cotton Bowl Stadium. Dallas’ most historic football field transforms into a super-sized un-leashed dog park for canines of all sizes to romp and run for just one afternoon!

FAIR PARK URBAN DASH

The Urban Dash will take you over, around, and through

Fair Park. You will climb over and under and through

obstacles like the dumpster dive and get a

perspective of Fair Park rarely

seen by others.


So get your legs ready for an Urban Dash like no other.
