Weekends are usually busy at the fair, and football weekend is a pure madhouse. Parking can be a challenge even on a slower day simply because there are not enough spots for the visitors. We advise taking public transportation and DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) State Fair Shuttle. Visit www.dart.org/statefair. The nearest DART station with free parking is the Mockingbird station.
If you do choose to park near the fair, try to find an attended lot and pay a little more, or try to park inside the fairgrounds if the lots are not full.
