Mayor's Back To School Fair for DallasISD

Let's get ready for school!

The 15th annual Mayor's Back to School Fair will be held on Thursday, August 4, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Automobile and Centennial Buildings in Fair Park presented by Walmart and Sam's Club. The Mayor's Back to School Fair is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas, Dallas area schools, public health departments, state agencies, non-profit organizations, corporations and hundreds of volunteers. Together, we help economically disadvantaged children start off the new school year with many of their school-related needs met in a 'one-stop destination.'
