20 Awesome Things to do in Dallas this Weekend, April 18 to 21

Happy 4/20 weekend!

As a perfect merging of events, 4/20 falls on Record Store Day and the Deep Ellum Gallery Walk -- yeah, you're welcome. There's an opera festival kicking off in Fort Worth, a screenprint showcase, a boxing match, GIF art, George Saunders (we've got free passes for that), two home shows, a Renaissance festival and Kettle Art's farewell exhibition show. It's another big ol' Dallas weekend so let's make a plan together.

Puff, puff, pass this list around your crew and click on the event titles for more information. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one elbow-deep in a Pringles tall can.)

Thursday 4.18 Jubilee, Kettle's Last Art Show (current location)-- Attention: Do not cry on the art! Artists hate that. Tonight is the beginning of the end: a gallery retrospective group show celebrating Kettle's longstay Deep Ellum address. Join everyone, simply everyone, as we unite to sing this song in the name of Kettle's community legacy.
