The Deep Ellum Arts Festival is proud to celebrate its 23rd anniversary this year with 3 days of art work, live music, and great food. Voted “Best Festival in Dallas” by local polls and ranked by participating artists as among the top 50 arts festivals in the nation, the free-to-attend street fest takes place on Main Street in the heart of Deep Ellum, between Malcolm X Blvd. and Exposition.

Festival highlights include 200 top-notch decorative and visual artists, 150 original bands and singer/songwriters performing on multiple stages, a Pet Parade on Sunday, and enticing foods and drinks. The festival opens for lunch on Friday at 11 a.m., offering downtown office workers a special opportunity to preview the festival during their lunch break.

With dozens of concessionaires and local restaurants, guests can enjoy a wide array of tasty local cuisines, beer, wine and cocktails while experiencing more than 200 juried fine artists. All artists will be displaying and selling their works and many will be creating live on the spot.

New this year are two indoor stages inside the iconic Sons of Hermann Hall. The adult-oriented festival (there are no activities geared toward children or teenagers) will also feature street performers, jugglers and other whimsical characters throughout the weekend, along with Poetry Slam’s open mic.
