UPDATE Below: Oprah Winfrey is coming to Dallas Fair Park, the home of the State Fair of Texas, on Monday October 12th, according to an WFAA news release. All we know so far is that Oprah Winfrey is scheduled to tape a show at Dallas Fair Park on October 12, but details of how Dallas/Fort Worth area people may be able to obtain tickets to see Oprah tape the Oprah Winfrey Show at the State Fair are still unknown.
Mike Devlin, WFAA president and general manager said, “We are pleased to welcome Oprah back to North Texas. Oprah is scheduled to be out and about, on the road across America this fall and Dallas-Fort Worth was one of the first cities chosen for a visit.”

I wonder if Oprah will try any of the deep fried, heart attack on a stick, State Fair foods while she’s in town. In case you didn’t know, the State Fair of Texas is also known as the Fried Food Capitol of Texas. Maybe Oprah will have the courage to taste test the Deep Fried Butter at the fair. Blech.
