All the Details

The Automobile Building, one of Fair Park's most visited pavilions, was built in 1947-1948. It replaced two other buildings which burned to the ground in 1942. However, it was not until 1985, when porticoes were added to the newer building, that the newer building came to match its predecessor in style and symmetry. Most of the year, the building sits quiet and unvisited. But when the State Fair of Texas is in full bloom, the building is teeming with car enthusiasts. It is available for special event leasing.
