Deep Ellum Art & Music Festival

Located: 2900-3400 MAIN STREET, DALLAS TX 75226

This is a FREE event, open to them public.

Described as Deep Ellum’s biggest party of the year, this festival features more than 200 visual artist, 100 bands and songwriters on six stages and two performance areas. This festival is celebrating their 25th year.

This festival is primarily for adults. You may bring your children, however there will not be activities specifically for them.

Expect parking to very challenging. I would recommend taking the DART train or bus, or maybe get a taxi, or Uber. The street is going to be barricaded, so if you do drive, you will have some walking to do.

Riding DART is easy! Take the DART Rail Green Line to the Baylor University Medical Center station which is the closest stop to the center of the festival at Hall and Main Streets, just 2 blocks from the station.

Even though this is a free event, don’t forget your wallet, because there will be food vendors, or you might want to buy some art to jazz up your home.
