The State Fair of Texas®, one of the oldest fairs in North America, has been helping Texas Youth for decades. Since the inception of the Youth Livestock Auction, they have established deep cultural and educational roots in Dallas and in turn, we’re touching lives of many Texans. The heart and soul of the organization is its charitable aspiration to promote youth education while preserving Texas’ and Dallas’ western heritage. Since 1990, they have contributed more than $18 million to Texas Youth to better educate deserving young students in Dallas and around the state. Click here to access the livestock schedule.
