Early, TX takes on The State Fair of Texas highlighting the events and attractions that make our community special. We helped staffed the Texas Heritage Travel booth in the historic Go Texan Pavilion, next to the State Fair Wine Garden and close to the Cotton Bowl.
Early’s “Destination Day” was October 17th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Early’s community banner and promotional literature was there, enhancing the statewide presence throughout the large booth.
“We are thrilled to showcase Early as a focus destination at the State Fair this year,” said Tammie Virden executive director of the Texas Forts Trail Region. “The Fair amazing place it is to visit, and we look forward to sharing that information with travelers from all over the world who come to enjoy it.”
The Texas Heritage Travel booth is the only statewide travel exhibitor at the Fair, where it has participated annually for more than a decade. Staffed by Texas Heritage Trail Regions personnel and partners, the both operates as a miniature visitor center, displaying banners and information about all ten of the state’s Heritage Trail Regions and distributing nearly two tons of free brochures, visitor guides, maps, and community-branded items throughout the duration of the Fair.
The Texas Heritage Trail Regions are an award-winning heritage tourism initiative of the Texas Historical Commission, serving the state since the program’s founding in 1968 as the Texas Travel Trails, and serving every county of Texas since 1998.
