If you want to start off your April on a high note, look no further than the annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival, happening April 6th through 8th, block party-style in the streets of downtown Dallas. Mix and mingle with over two hundred artists who will be on site creating, commissioning, and selling original crafts and wares.
The fun doesn't stop once you've scored enough one-of-a-kind accessories to make any Etsy lover drool with envy; the festival has slated over a hundred musicians to perform across several local venues, including the historic Sons of Hermann Ball Ballroom. The genres run the gamut from indie-folk to spoken-word slam poetry, so it's near-guaranteed that there will be something for everyone in your group.
If you tire yourself out from all the moving and grooving, fear not! It's easy to refuel yourself and keep the buzz going by sampling the delicious, Instagrammable cuisine of local restaurateurs, all of which will be featuring specialized menus and curated cocktail menus. A quick glance of the menu boasts quite a selection - everything from shaved ice snow cones to "Deep Fried Gator Sausage on a Stick."
If the lure of all this cultural enrichment isn't quite enough to entice you, there are two Sunday parades to seal the deal. First up is the family-friendly Pet Parade, where pups of all sizes will be competing for the coveted Best Costume, Best Personality, and Best Trick awards. Stick around after to catch the Artists in Motion parade, which will celebrate the festival's artisans with an explosion of music, dancing, and good vibes.
All this and much, much more will be in walking distance from your apartment, so grab a few art-loving friends, make Mosaic Dallas your home base, and enjoy three days of soaking in some truly inspiring community fun. Contact us today to schedule a tour of the Mosaic Dallas community.
