2023 Big Tex Boot Design Contest Presented by Lucchese

DALLAS – October 26, 2022 – It’s time to hang up Big Tex’s old boots and design a new pair! The 2023 Big Tex Boot Design Contest officially kicks off today, October 26, 2022. In 2019, Big Tex got a brand-new pair of custom Lucchese boots designed by previous contest winner Katie Sauceda of Keller, Texas. Now, he wants to allow another loyal Fair fan to create his next pair that he’ll debut at the 2023 State Fair of Texas.

In 2019, they narrowed the contest to ten designs, with Sauceda’s design as the top choice. As the first-place winner, Sauceda received the opportunity to work with the State Fair of Texas and Lucchese Bootmaker to put the finishing touches on her boot design before bringing it to life on Big Tex’s size 96 boots. While these boots are very special to Big Tex, he’s ready to refresh his wardrobe with a new pair. The 2023 Big Tex Boot Design Contest, presented by Lucchese Bootmaker, gives Fair fans a chance to design the most significant, best-known pair of boots in the Lone Star State.

It’s time to get creative and submit your best design. All you need to do is draw, paint, or illustrate your creation on the templates provided at BigTex.com/DesignMyBoots and present them with an entry form to the State Fair of Texas. They will announce the winning design on March 2, 2023. Who knows? It just might be yours.

The contest opens today, October 26, 2022, and the deadline is January 31, 2023, so get to designing! To be considered, you must have your entry postmarked by Tuesday, January 31, 2023.
