Dallasites have a variety of activities they can participate in during Easter weekend. Here are a few events.
Arlington Art Festival:
This weekend, come prepared to look and perhaps purchase some artwork at the 9th Annual South Street Art Festival.
The festival will be held in the Downtown Cultural Arts District of Arlington from April 7-9 and features up to 100 local, regional, and national artists.
“As an artist myself, you know the joy of it is being able to sell your work and everything, and so for me providing that opportunity for these artists is what is really what it’s all about. That’s what I enjoy is just creating one more opportunity for them,” said event organizer Steve Moya to The Dallas Express.
There will be 14 different categories of artwork.
Eventgoers will be allowed to bring lawn chairs to sit and enjoy local performances, but outside coolers are prohibited.
The festival is a dog-friendly festival, so bring your four-legged friends and enjoy the atmosphere.
There will also be live musical performances from bands such as Soul Sacrifice, The Groove Janitors, Denver Williams, and many more.
The festival boasts a fun, family atmosphere for all to enjoy during Easter weekend.
Food at the festival will showcase multiple vendors that will satisfy any craving.
There will be pulled pork and brisket sandwiches from Barnes BBQ, gumbo and Creole food from Mr. B’s Gumbo and Mo, cheese steaks, turkey legs, and more from the NFA Grill, shaved ice from Snowie of Texas, and soft-served ice cream from Mister Softee.
