The Deep Ellum Arts Festival shows off the hottest neighbourhood in Downtown Dallas, drawing over 100,000 devotees during its three day run. More than 200 juried decorative and visual artists display their works, including murals, fashion parades and a poetry circus, while loads of new bands and singers take to the stages. Food isn't forgotten, with a food village created by some of Deep Ellum's signature restaurants and vendors, ranging from Mexican, Caribbean and Mediterranean to the local favourite barbecues. There's also a selection of wine, craft beer and sodas when having fun becomes thirsty work. And the best thing is, entry is free.
Venue: Deep Ellum Entertainment District on Main Street, between Good Latimer and Hall Streets
Date: 11 - 13 September
