DALLAS (AP) - The 2016 State Fair of Texas will carry the theme “Celebrating Texas Agriculture.”

Fair officials on Wednesday announced details of the annual expo planned Sept. 30 through Oct. 23 in Dallas.

Fairgoers can also get an inside look at the life of singer and songwriter Taylor Swift.

An exhibit called “The Taylor Swift Experience” includes memorabilia such as costumes, photos and instruments. The display will include the light blue Reem Acra gown that Swift wore last year during the Academy of Country Music awards at AT&T; Stadium in Arlington.
