The 21st Annual Mayor’s Back to School Fair will be held on Friday, August 4, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Centennial Building in Fair Park. As most parents recognize, the costs associated with the first day of school can quickly add up between check-ups, dentist appointments, wardrobe refreshers, uniforms and school supplies. It is no surprise that for many families the process can be an overwhelming.
That’s why so many community supporters continue to come together year after year to help students and families that love them with their school-related needs at the MAYOR’S BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR.
From free school supplies for Dallas schoolchildren (who meet specific eligibility requirements), to free health, dental and vision screenings, immunizations and haircuts, to the latest information on education, health and social services, the 21st-annual Fair offers parents and children everything they need for the first day of school. Plus, the Fair will also feature musical entertainment, kids activities, games, interactive demonstrations and more.
Things to know:
- The Fair is free and open to the public. Free school supplies are made available to families with school-aged children who (a) reside in the City of Dallas or attend Dallas ISD schools and (b) who meet eligibility requirements.
