The annual Dallas Arts Festival will take place this year from September 10- 12, 2021. Festival attendees will enjoy the sights, sounds, and soul of Dallas’ most innovative and creative
neighborhood in an event that stretches six city blocks and over half a mile from Malcolm X Blvd., with the Festival extending past Sons of Hermann Hall to Exposition Ave. Since the April 2020 and 2021 festivals were postponed due to COVID-19, this free community visual and performing arts festival returns for its 26th edition this fall with the majority of performers, fine artists, and sponsors that were previously programmed rolling over to September. In addition, next year’s Festival will return to its normal April dates. For decades, the Deep Ellum Arts Festival has invited Dallas-Fort Worth locals and visitors from surrounding areas to a free event celebrating art and the creatives who make it. The Festival will feature juried fine artists from throughout the nation displaying and selling their original works. The exquisite collections showcased will include paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry, woodworking, ceramics, mixed media, leatherworks, fashion, and other unique works of art and fine crafts. The Festival will also feature original entertainment from bands,
singer/songwriters, and musical artists representing different genres. The Deep Ellum Arts Festival is where you will discover the newest up-and-coming names in the music industry, from local acts to national performers along with cutting-edge visual and fine arts.
