Explore: Deep Ellum Art Festival

Come join us for some art, music and fun on

Sunday April 7, 2013 at the Deep Ellum Art Festival


One of Dallas' more eclectic and unique neighborhoods, Deep Ellum holds a yearly festival celebrating what makes it special.  Six blocks of Main Street in the Deep Ellum entertainment district will be transformed into one enormous street festival featuring, 200 top-notch juried decorative and visual artists, 100 original bands, singer/songwriters and performance artists performing from five different stages, the renowned Pet Parade, and copious food and drink. Festival attendees can stroll through displays of cutting-edge decorative arts and admire, commission, and purchase the art of sculptors, muralists, jewelers, painters, and fine artists; some of whom will be creating pieces on the spot.

Due to the size of the group we will no longer be meeting for lunch as there is no way for a restaurant to handle our size. I have also changed the location to better accommodate meeting up, as well as make it more convenient for parking and anyone taking the DART (which I recommend).

By attending this event you agree to our attendance policy located HERE .

    It was good seeing everybody that was able to make it. It was disappointing there were so many no shows though :(

    Thanks again to Omar for putting this together.

    We need to have something to represent us as being in the group, or having a group is pointless. This way we can find each other, as we go along or as we enter. We could simply write DFW in sharpie on our hand--easy and everyone can do it. We could also meetup at the Texas Ford Stage (at Latimer and Main) at 1 pm, in case people get lost.

      Hi Jessica. We usually don't have any problems getting and finding each other. As for late people it'll be hard to organize a meeting time since it wouldn't let us go through the festival at whatever pace we wanted. My number has been posted and we should be easy enough to spot.

    I updated the event's meetup location as well as detail. An email has been sent as well, please let me know if there are any questions.

    How much is it to enter the art festival? I want to bring cash for that. Thank you

    April 4, 2013

    • Omar A.

      There's no cost, though I do recommend bringing cash for any food trucks or purchases you may want to make.

    Are we able to buy art at this event?
    If we are what is the preferred payment method?

    April 1, 2013

    • Lacy B

      I volunteered and went to the art festival last year. There are lots of local artists and vendors there selling their goods. A good number of them take cards, but cash is always king.

      April 1, 2013

    • Brian

      You can work out a better deal with cash. I bought two pieces from here a few years ago in the alley exhibit

  • Steve

    How will I find anyone in Deep Ellum who's *not* with the meetup?

    3 · April 1, 2013

  • Valene

    I would like to come but will not be able to attend till after 1:30 or 2:00. How would I find you guys if I am late?

    April 1, 2013

    • Omar A.

      I'll post my number the day before the event so people can text me if they can't spot us and I'll be updating our location every so often in this page. Considering our group size we shouldn't be that hard to spot either.

      April 1, 2013

    • Valene

      awesome! Thanks!

      April 1, 2013

  • Doug G.

    How will I be able to find the group if I don't see anyone I recognize?

    5 · April 1, 2013

    • Omar A.

      A stranger is just a friend in waiting. So just talk to anyone until you make a new friend.

  • Craig

    Are you going to get busses so that we can all stick together and not get lost? If so, I'll rent out the one I've been living in during the winter.

      Why have they started putting RSVP comments in the regular comments section? Annoying.

      1 · March 25, 2013

    • Omar A.

      Cause now you see people's intro. Which is annoying..makes it look really crowded.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
