Mayor’s Back To School Fair

Summer may be in full swing, but school is just around the corner! Don’t miss the 21st-annual Mayor’s Back to School Fair, presented by Walmart, on Friday, Aug. 4, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Centennial Building at Fair Park.

A one-stop shop with all the back-to-school essentials, the Fair will offer free school supplies for Dallas schoolchildren (who meet eligibility requirements); free services including health, dental and vision screenings; immunizations and haircuts, plus the latest information on education, health and social services. Backpacks will be given away to kids in pre-K through 6th grade. Musical entertainment, kids activities, games, interactive demos and more make for an exciting event that’s not to be missed! 

Families who qualify are encouraged to pre-register by July 29 in order to reserve free school supplies. By pre-registering, families will have more time to enjoy all the amazing services available at the Fair! 

Admission is free. Parking is free, or visitors can ride DART. New this year: Shuttle service within Fair Park will be available to and from the Centennial Building, where the Fair’s main entrance is located. The Centennial Building at Fair Park is located at 1001 Washington St. in Dallas. 

For more information, eligibility requirements and a list of pre-registration events, please call 311 or go to mayorsbacktoschoolfair.com.
