    State Fair Introduces 'Sensory-Friendly Mornings'

    The State Fair of Texas introduced "sensory-friendly mornings" for people who may find the bright lights and loud sounds of the fair to be overwhelming. Sensory-friendly mornings happen every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Published Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018)

    For the first time the State Fair of Texas is introducing Sensory-Friendly Mornings.

    The fair worked with national and local organizations to come up with ways to make the fair grounds more accessible to those with autism or sensory-related concerns.

    Between the hours of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Wednesday of the fair there will be no lights, music or microphones on the Midway.

    The Fair also created a guided itinerary with a list of activities that are easy on the eyes and ears and designated areas as “Quiet Zones” where families can go to depressurize.
