The Fry Street Fair: A Look Back On The Annual Event of Denton, Texas in the Early 1980s

Discontinued in 2007, the Fry Street Fair was an annual event held near the University of North Texas campus and featured live music performances. It was first held in 1979, but was shut down due to costs and security concerns. Attendance reached 20,000 in its peak year.

These fascinating photos were taken by American photographer Alec Williams that documented the Fry Street Fair festivals from 1981 to 1985.
