CityArts Festival + ARTFEST - Dallas
Returning Memorial Day weekend May 25 - 27, CityArts Festival presented by Big City Crushed Concrete will offer activities and entertainment for families, staycationers and art aficionados alike to enjoy against the backdrop of historic Fair Park. ARTFEST, the popular juried art show coordinated by The 500, Inc., will once again be held outdoors at CityArts Festival to showcase fine art and original pieces by nearly 150 renowned Texas and national artists. For more than 40 years, ARTFEST has supported and helped raise money for cultural arts organizations in the Dallas area.
Other highlights will include two outdoor film screenings of “American Graffiti” (9 p.m. Friday) and “Grease” (9 p.m. Saturday) with 60s-themed dance pre-parties; an indoor culinary showcase featuring star chefs, plus craft beer, wine and liquor tastings; art classes for adults and teens ($5); unique kids activities; reduced admission to Fair Park’s museums at select times; Art Cars by “cartists” from Texas and beyond; entertainment; shopping; top-of-the-hour “dancing water” shows at the Esplanade Fountain; and more.
