If you’ve been looking to get more culture in your life, then you are in luck. The 23rd Annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival is hitting Dallas Friday, April 7 through Sunday, April 9.
200 local ornamental/visual artists, as well as 150 Dallas-area musical acts including Country, Folk, Rock, Ska, Punk, Funk, Bluegrass, Blues, Jazz, and Indie Alternative will line Main Street between Malcolm X Blvd and Exposition to sell their wares and showcase their talents.
And, for the culinary, craft beer or cocktail connoisseur, a plethora of concessionaires and local restaurants will be on hand to offer a vast assortment of international/continental cuisine and tasty adult beverages for age-appropriate attendees to enjoy.
In addition to the onstage musicians scheduled to perform throughout the 3-day festival, keep a lookout for roving street performers who may spontaneously serenade you or on-the-spot artists ready to create their works of art right before your eyes. Plus, the iconic Sons of Hermann Hall will be open with two indoor stages hosting demonstrations aesthetically pleasing for the eyes and ears.
Attendance is free for art-lovers of all ages (but, fair warning, not all acts and artwork may be suitable for children), and you can even enter your furry friends into the Pet Parade being held Sunday.
Former participating musicians and artists have, in their personal opinion, ranked this festival as one of the top 50 annual art festivals in the nation, and was voted “Best Festival in Dallas” by the Dallas Observer in 2015.
The festivities kick off Friday at 11 a.m. to allow Downtown employees a chance to check out the festival and grab some lunch before going back to work. It truly will be a weekend filled to the brim with frivolity. Don’t miss the 23rd Annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival.
