Big Tex is Hiring! 

With more than 100 days until the 2023 State Fair of Texas, our 55-foot-tall cowboy is looking to hire thousands of seasonal Tex Team members to welcome the masses to the most Texan place on Earth. Known for celebrating all things Texan, seasonal team members are essential to greeting fairgoers worldwide with our signature Texantude. 

Seasonal job applications for a variety of departments are now available online at BigTex.com/Jobs. 

The Fair provides more than 7,000 seasonal job opportunities every year, with approximately 2,200 people employed directly by the State Fair of Texas. The starting wage for job openings paid by the State Fair of Texas in 2023 is $17.82/hour, a 17% increase from the previous $15.21/hour in 2022. Applications for State Fair seasonal positions can be found online, with opportunities available in the following areas: coupon sales, creative arts, games, gates, guest services, livestock, maintenance, plumbing, and others. As the annual event is a collection of small businesses, our business partners offer the remaining seasonal positions, including contractors, food and beverage concessionaires, ride and games operators, vendors, clean team, and security.
