Norma’s Cafe has been a proud sponsor of the State Fair of Texas and the Big Tex Youth Livestock Auction for years so we were just as heartbroken, yet understanding, of their decision to cancel the 2020 season.

We couldn’t let our friends go without some Midway sweets or deep fried treats, so we’re introducing the State Fair of Norma’s from August through October!

Enjoy all of your state fair favorites but with a twist! Norma’s Cafe is also raising funds and awareness for United Way Dallas and the Big Tex Youth Livestock Auction and Scholarship Program!

2. All 5 Cafes will be collecting school supplies and sanitation items for underserved Dallas schools and after-school programs.

4. Enjoy any of our State Fair of Norma’s items and help spread the word!
