Nearly every year since 1886, Dallas has been home to the signature event, the State Fair of Texas. Over two million people from Texas and neighboring states annually flock to Fair Park for the games, deep-fried food, and exciting live event productions.
Onstage has played a part in this tradition for many years by providing audio visual production services for the State Fair of Texas, such as professional stage lighting, audio, staging rentals, and video elements throughout the fairgrounds. We’ve also been able to take staging and stage design to the next level with a featured stage in the middle of a fountain that provided as a platform for varying dance and acrobatic performances.
While working the fair, Onstage has run into various audio visual production challenges. From power and cabling in a water fountain to rooftop access for performance areas, Texas-sized problems require Texas-sized thinking. The experience and versatility of our technicians play the biggest part of our success.
Onstage has procured waterproof speaker cables that can be run in fountains as well as custom speaker configurations. All this ensures for clear 360-degree audio projection from the stage. We also had wireless lighting controls to reduce the amount of cabling within the viewing areas. To protect the robotic lighting from the constantly changing Texas weather, eco domes were used for over 4 weeks through rehearsals and live performances.
