2013 Texas Veggie Fair – October 20

17 Oct

Each year it just gets bigger and better: The Texas Veggie Fair. A fair designed for DFW vegans, vegetarians and those in support of. On Sunday, October 20th, (from 11am to 6pm) North Texans will gather once again at Reverchon Park in Dallas for this remarkable, FREE event promoting the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle! We promise the food will be just as delicious as your regular State Fair of Texas, but just within a more intimate setting than Fair Park. It only provides a sample of what’s available in the “Vegan” North Texas world though and please note that TVF is a one-day event.

After sinking out teeth into the veggie corny dog and the oh-so-amazing fried cinnamon roll (both pictured below) at last year’s Veggie State Fair of Texas it’s a MUST that we go back! Not to mention, Erykah Badu, is expected to do some DJ-ing at the event. You can catch her Saturday, Oct 19th at the Lamar Street Festival. Then check for @fatbellybella herself on Sunday at the 2013 Texas Veggie State Fair. At one event (the music festival) you’ll see the artist doing her typical song & dance, and at the other event the well endowed Dallas Diva can be caught using her alter ego to DJ in the park!

Two absolute favorites from last year's TVF - www.redhotvegans.com

While fair food is quite a draw, this outdoor festival covers everything vegan/veggie related: vegan products, animal rights, recycling, yoga, product vendors, bio-degradable flatware, chef demos, speakers on plant-based diets, locally-made soaps and more! It’ll be exciting to see live music added to the lineup this year.

ADMISSION IS FREE!!!

The list of vendors and exhibitors continues to grow each year!

2013 State Fair of Texas Discounts

6 Oct

One regular admission ticket for an adult to the State Fair this year is $17. Children and seniors get in for $13. Unless you’re under the age of 3 (which means you wouldn’t be reading this) you can’t get in for FREE. A season pass will cost about $40, and one sheet of 20 coupons is $10. Another way to save a little change is to buy your fair ticket ahead of time online. Then it’ll be $14.95, as opposed to $17.

You’re best bet for getting the biggest discounts on admission to the Texas State Fair is to go between Tuesday and Friday.

Here are ways to save money on admission to the 2013 State Fair of Texas!!

TUESDAYS DEALS

Bring an empty Dr. Pepper can for $5 admission on Tuesdays, or $8 admission any day after 5 pm.

Go see BIG TEX and head straight to the Midway on a Tuesday so you can hop on even more amusement rides because all rides (except for thrill rides and the Texas Star) are ONLY SIX COUPONS each – a savings of anywhere between two to six coupons (or $1-$3) per ride.

WEDNESDAY’S DEAL

Thanks to the North Texas Food Bank and Kroger, if you bring 3 canned goods (per person), you’ll receive $3.00 admission on Wednesdays. Help fight hunger in North Texas!

THURSDAY’S DEALS

On Coca-Cola Thursday, bring an empty 20-ounce bottle and get $6 admission in exchange.

Every Thursday is also Senior Day, meaning fairgoers over the age of 60 get in absolutely FREE! On any other day seniors can still get $4.00 off admission.

Also, save your ticket stub from Cinemark Theatres, bring it to the fair on a Thursday, and receive FREE admission!!
