Are you ready for some football? The Dallas Cowboys will host this year’s NFL draft, and while tickets are no longer available for the draft event happening inside AT&T Stadium, there will be lots of free fun going on outside. Called the NFL Draft Experience, the three-day festival will include visits from current and former Dallas Cowboys such as Dak Prescott and Cole Beasley, chances to test your football skills at various activities, virtual reality games, photo ops, displays of memorabilia including the Cowboys’ five Super Bowl trophies and exhibits from the NFL Museum, including all 51 Super Bowl rings and the NFC and AFC championship trophies. There’ll also be music from Vintage Trouble, Tameca Jones and others, and food from Fletcher’s Corny Dogs, Torchy’s Tacos, Off the Bone Barbeque, Desperados, Crushcraft Thai and more.

The NFL Draft is coming to AT&T Stadium April 26-28 and thousands of fans from across the country will be in town to take part in the sports frenzy and fun. Tickets to sit inside the stadium for the actual player draft have been distributed, but there will be plenty of action outside the stadium at the free-to-attend NFL Draft Experience.

Fans can test their football skills, take selfies with oversized helmets of their favorite team, view past Cowboys’ Super Bowl trophies, and get autographs from current and past players. Kids can test their skils in Extra Point Kick, Long Snap and Quarterback Challenge and take part in on-field clinics (ages 6-17).

Visitors can enjoy eats from some of North Texas' most popular restaurants in the "Taste of the Town Tailgate" area. The Bud Light Ice House will be offering cold beer and big-screen TVs to watch all the Draft Day action inside the stadium.

The NFL Draft Experience will take place in the plazas and parking lots on the east side of the stadium. Admission and parking are free. You can register in advance for the free Fan Mobile Pass or just show up.
