Register at one of these events to attend the Mayor’s Back to School Fair


The Mayor’s Back to School Fair is Friday, Aug. 4, at the Centennial Building at Fair Park, and the event will once again provide a one-stop-shop complete with all the back-to-school basics.

Parents and children can find everything they need to prepare for the school year – from free school supplies for Dallas schoolchildren (who meet eligibility requirements); to free health, dental and vision screenings; to immunizations and haircuts; plus the latest information on education, health and social services.
