The ongoing pandemic may have forced officers to cancel the State Fair of Texas, but people can still get some of the experience, fried food, Fletcher’s corny dogs, and even Midway prizes.

The Big Tex Fair Food Drive-Thru is open on Friday from 10 a.m. and is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in September and October.


In the case you need to visit the fair, you are asked to reserve a time slot online and pick a package. All prices start at $65 and differ depending on the quantity of food.

The packages include fair favorites like Fletcher’s corny dog, kettle corn, fried Oreos, and an official photo with Big Tex,  wearing a face mask this year.

Amber Fletcher, with Fletcher, said, “I’ve never been able to describe the feeling it is, the amount of love and support the community has given my family. But again, being here for almost 80 years, you would hope to have that kind of love and support. So grateful and just read to get cooking and start serving corny dogs.”

Viewers can enjoy playing Midway games while sitting inside their cars.

Rusty Fitzgerald, the senior vice president for the State Fair of Texas, said, “It’s cool because we’re doing this on this site and doing the food drive-through and serving those people. But on the other side, we’re doing our livestock shows too in a safe way. And so it all comes together. So we’re putting on a small event that’s not like the fair, but it’s really great and good for the public out there.”
