We encourage visitors to take DART to the entrance of Fair Park. The City of Dallas charges $10 for parking in lots at Fair Park.

Where do I park at Fair Park?

We encourage event attendees to use alternative means of transportation – biking, DART, carpooling – but if you need to drive, we recommend entering and parking at Gates 2, 6 and 10 at Fair Park.

Can I ride my bike to the event?

Yes – in fact, we encourage it! We will have large bike parking stations inside the event.

The Green Line of DART rail will take you right to the entrance of Fair Park, next to Gate 4 and the Music Hall off Parry and Exposition Avenue. Once you hop on the train your stop is called ‘Fair Park Station.’ Easy enough to remember!
DART is a great resource here in Dallas and, even if you’ve never taken the rail line before, we encourage you to try it out for the first time for EarthX.

Is the event family-friendly and can I bring my kids?

Absolutely!  Although there will be some areas designated for adults, there will also be numerous activities specifically designed for children and families. These will be fun, interactive, and educational activities across the footprint of the event. Earth Day Texas is the perfect place to spend the weekend with family and friends!

Can I bring my dog?

Yes. The City of Dallas places certain restrictions on dogs entering buildings, but there are plenty of outdoor activities and areas for your best friend to join you on your journey through EarthX 2018. Please remember to keep your dog on a leash and bring paper bags to pick up after you pet!

Will there be something to eat at the event?

Yes, there will be healthy, sustainable dining options, samples from some of the best restaurants and chefs in Dallas and snacks from local Texas food producers.

What should I bring?

Please bring friends, family, dogs, bikes, refillable water containers, and a thirst for learning. Purses and shoulder bags are allowed, as are strollers. Smart phones are encouraged (download the EarthX mobile app!). Check the weather before you head out and don’t forget your eco-friendly sunscreen if it is going to be sunny.
