Food Don't think for a second you are going to be walking around looking at art and listening to music without some sort of piece of meat in your hand. And a beer. There will be enough food at this festival to kill someone. Good food, too. To buy the food, you need coupons. Coupons are sold by the 10s for $10.

So much art will be in Deep Ellum this weekend, including ceramics, digital art, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, metalworks, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, wood and others. The artists and businesses are coming from all over the nation -- everywhere from Missouri to California.
