The Dallas area City Arts Festival is a FREE event that takes place Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29 at Dallas’ historic Fair Park. Any kind of art you can imagine will be going on from crafts to musicals, films, cooking, and more! While there are lots to do for all ages, I am most excited about the Prudential Children’s Area…
Open Saturday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
The Prudential Children’s Area will be chock-full of arts and crafts, interactive activities and family-fun entertainment. The Dallas Zoo will present their interactive Animal Adventure live animal show at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Around 20 prominent arts organizations and nonprofits will be on site providing arts and crafts and interactive activities including the Nasher Sculpture Center, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Dallas Museum of Art, Big Thought, Dallas Contemporary, Dallas Film Society, Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance, Dallas Public Library, Dallas Summer Musicals, International Museum of Cultures, Japan America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth, Museum of the American Railroad, Musical Angels, Old Red Museum of Dallas County History and Culture, Texas Discovery Gardens, Texas Museum of Automotive History, The McKinney Avenue Contemporary, The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future, Sip-n-doodle and more.
The Big Thought Touring Art Exhibit presented by Prudential will feature art created by students in the Thriving Minds After School program at John W. Carpenter Elementary School. Artwork will include fabric weavings, ceramic sculptures and stained glass murals focused on the meaning of “community.”
