The North Texas Fair and Rodeo is partnering with UNT to host UNT Day at the fair Friday, Oct. 23. Complimentary UNT Alumni Association gaiters may be claimed on a first come first served basis at the information booth located inside the Exhibit Building. They are available to the first 300 UNT alumni and friends while supplies last. (Look for a life-sized cutout of Scrappy in his cowboy hat to help spot the booth.)
This year's fair received approval from local government and will be following a COVID-19 safety plan that includes face covering requirements, social distancing, a touchless cash system, sanitation stations and reduced capacities in various areas of the grounds.
Friday's schedule includes carnival rides, livestock shows, a kids' tractor pull, concerts and other attractions throughout the night. There will be bull riding at the Miller Lite Bull Blow Out starting at 7:30 p.m. and concerts featuring Braxton Keith, Garrett Bryan and Madison Paige at 6 p.m., Sawyer Brown at 9:30 p.m. and Randall King at 11 p.m.
General admission to the fair, rodeo and concerts is $20 for adults and $5 for children ages 7-12, but UNT faculty, staff and students will receive a $6 discount on a gate ticket purchase Friday with a valid UNT ID. Gates are open from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
