The free 3-day, Deep Ellum Arts Festival in Downtown Dallas embodies everything that makes DFW rock.
Six blocks of Main Street in the Dallas entertainment district of Deep Ellum, 2900-3400 Main Street, Dallas TX 75226, will be transformed into one enormous street festival. And don’t forget about all of the enticing food vendors that are located strategically throughout the festival along the route, which are sure to satisfy that ‘festival-appetite’ that we always seem to get this time of the year. Local pet enthusiasts always look forward to the renowned Pet Parade, when they can march alongside their furr-babies in what has become the ‘must-attend’ event of the festival.
Festival attendees can stroll through displays of cutting-edge decorative arts and admire, commission, and purchase the works of sculptors, muralists, jewelers, painters, leather and wood crafters, as well as other specialized fine artists, some of whom will be creating original pieces on the spot.
Be sure to check out the ‘Artist Underground,’an interactive creative space featuring Dallas mid-career professional artists as a cohesive collective. Expect to interact with fine art, live painters, graffiti artists, body painting, installation art, sculpture, dance, performance art, live music and more.
