Art Takes the Streets

The best part of school was always recess. The playground. The swings and the monkey bars and the time to play with other rascals. But with adulthood comes taxes and boring dinner parties and no more recess. And it sucks. But luckily for you, there’s an adult version of recess called the annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival. It’s a celebration that will take over Main Street and showcase hundreds of musical performances, artworks and a ton of food and drinks from all sorts of Dallas restaurants. If that doesn’t excite you, it will also be similar to your elementary school days in that there will be a daily poetry slam and open mic. You did free-verse jams in third grade, right? The event kicks off at 11 a.m. Friday and sticks around all weekend. Admission is free. More info at deepellumartsfestival.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: April 3. Continues through April 5, 2015
