Event description

Description

On Friday June 12, 1936 President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the Centennial Exposition at Fair Park as part of a pre re-election campaign swing through the South. His car entered through the gate by the Auditorium and continued down First Avenue, turning left on Grand, past the Federal building and the Hall of State before entering the Cotton Bowl to a crowd of 50,000 where he gave a thirty-minute speech, which was broadcast on national network radio, ending it with “I salute the Empire of Texas”.

On March 21, 2019 the Roosevelts return to Fair Park.
