"State Fair" is a 1962 film directed by José Ferrer. The film is a remake of the 1933 film of the same name.

It was considered to be a financially and critically unsuccessful film. It starred Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, Tom Ewell, and Alice Faye. Richard Rodgers wrote additional songs, both music and lyrics, for this version, as Oscar Hammerstein had died in 1960.

While the first two versions were set at the Iowa State Fair, the 1962 version was filmed in Dallas, Texas, where the State Fair of Texas takes place every year in Fair Park. The Tilt-A-Whirl that was used in the movie is currently at a small theme park in Golden, Colorado.
