DALLAS — Mayor Eric Johnson on Monday announced that the 25th annual Dallas Mayor’s Back to School Fair will take place Aug. 6 at Fair Park.
Families must register online at mayorsbacktoschoolfair.com to receive school supplies. The registration deadline is July 30. All families must meet 2021 Federal Poverty Guidelines to receive assistance.
The fair is a collaborative effort between the City of Dallas, Dallas ISD, nonprofits, corporations, and community volunteers; has traditionally served as a time-saving, one-stop shop that offers school supplies and a wealth of information and community resources. But like last year, the fair will have drive-through and walk-up options and will not provide the same resource offerings because of the risk of COVID-19, particularly among children who are not yet eligible to receive a vaccine.
