As always, there’s plenty to do in Dallas this weekend, but this one in particular seems to have a theme: celebration. Big breweries like Community, 3 Nations and Siren Rock are celebrating anniversaries while Pride Month continues with drag brunches galore.

Here are 10 food events to fill your weekend:

Taste of Dallas
Dallas Market Hall, 2200 North Stemmons Freeway
Friday to Sunday, June 10 to 12

This weekend is Taste of Dallas’ 36th celebration of all things food. General admission tickets are $20 online and at the gate and get you access to more than 75 restaurants, food vendors and trucks. There will also be local artisans and beverage partners. Check out the full slate of activities on their website; each day there's something new and distinct, like a Whisky, BBQ and Bacon event ($85) on Friday at 6:30 p.m. and a Sunday Brunch taste tour ($55).

Night Market at Pegasus City
Pegasus City Brewery, 1508 Commerce St.
5 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 10

Community Beer Company 8 Year Anniversary
Community Beer, 3110 Commonwealth Drive
12 p.m. Saturday, June 11

While Community’s eighth anniversary was technically in 2021, their move to the new location made it impossible to celebrate, so after a two-year hiatus, Community is bringing on the party. Pull out your Reeboks with the straps, because this is an '80s-themed beer extravaganza with drinks, live music and food trucks. Tickets range from $35.88 to $68.88 and can be purchased online.

Limited-quantity anniversary beers, 3 Nations Biergarten Grill bites, and anniversary tees will also be available for purchase and live music from Delimac and Buzz Andrews Band will be playing throughout the day.

Release the Siren! Siren Rock Year One Anniversary Party
Siren Rock Brewing Co., 310 South Goliad St.
12 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 11

Siren Rock is turning 1, and they’ve got a celebration this weekend worthy of the occasion. With live music, special-edition releases and lots of photo ops, Siren Rock is the place to be. A $25 ticket includes a limited edition glass, two beer pours and live music with DJ Justin, The Everett Lippel Band, and Cruz and Council Band. Joe’s Backyard BBQ food truck will also be on the scene.

Snooze, 3211 Oak Lawn Ave.
2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 11
