In addition to supporting our membership from within, the Texas Association of Fairs and Events represents its members by creating partnerships and channels of communication to external audiences.
Texas Fair and Event Leaders Day at the Capitol
During each legislative season, TAF&E organizes a legislative event to create a presence for our industry with Texas's elected officials. The Association has been instrumental in influencing legislation that affects our members, such as the successful passage of a bill in 2001 that grants a property tax exemption to all fair associations that own their own fairground property. TAF&E serves as a legislative watchdog for any issue that could impact the fair/event, agriculture and entertainment industries.
