ADA - Information

Date: Mar 21 - Mar 31, 2024
The South Texas State Fair strives to comply with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. We are committed to working with Jefferson County, the owners of the facility, to make the facility accessible to all guests.

Ford Park meets and exceeds all structural and service requirements stipulated in the Americans with Disabilities Act. All public restrooms and entrances are clearly labeled and equipped with Braille marked signs. Restrooms, drinking fountains and permanently installed counters (concessions located in the Arena) are accessible to guests with disabilities. Additional services are listed below.

Accessible parking is available on a first come first serve basis at Ford Park in the Black and Blue Lots. Parking entrances are located off of the I-10 frontage road to the north and Pipeline Road off of Hwy 124.

An elevator is located in the lobby of the Ford Exhibit Hall for wheelchair access to the concourse level of Ford Arena and the second floor meeting rooms of Ford Exhibit Hall.
