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.
