CityArts Fair Park Festival

24 May

From www.cityartsfestival.com:

Friday, May 27 through Sunday, May 29, 2011
Free & open to the public

Showcasing spectacular cultural, performing, visual and culinary arts, CityArts Festival presented by Big City Crushed Concrete will fill historic Fair Park with three days of art-loving, museum-visiting, chef-cooking, craft-making, film-watching, music-playing, fireworks-flying, water-dancing, full-blown family fun, Friday, May 27 – Sunday, May 29.

Free and open to the public, the event will boast a worldly array of festivities for families and art aficionados to enjoy Memorial Day weekend against the backdrop of Fair Park, a national landmark featuring the world’s largest collection of art deco exhibit buildings, art and sculpture.

New this year – ARTFEST will return to its traditional outdoor setting over Memorial Day weekend, a Friday night flick al fresco debuts as the perfect date night destination and rooftop fireworks will rock the town Saturday night!

Thanks to Atmos Energy, Fair Park’s eight museums will offer free admission during the weekend (hours vary) including the African American Museum, Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park, The Women’s Museum, Dallas Historical Society/Hall of State, Texas Museum of Automotive History, Texas Discovery Gardens, Museum of Nature & Science and Museum of the American Railroad.

Other highlights at CityArts Festival will include musical, dance and other performing arts acts on the main stage sponsored by MetroPCS; a children’s area sponsored by Prudential featuring more than 20 prominent arts organizations and nonprofits offering arts and crafts, interactive activities and family-fun entertainment; multi‐disciplinary demos and workshops; and a culinary area complete with demos and samplings by local chefs, plus beer, wine and liquor tastings.

And if that were not enough, you can watch Bellagio-style “dancing water” shows at the Esplanade Fountain, synchronized to music at the top of every hour from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Friday; 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday; and 12 noon – 5 p.m. Sunday.
