The Deep Ellum Arts Festival will celebrate its 23rd anniversary in 2017. The festival starts at Malcolm X Blvd. and ends at Exposition Hall outside the iconic Sons of Hermann Hall.

With dozens of concessionaires and local restaurants, guests can enjoy a wide array of tasty local cuisines, beer, wine and cocktails while experiencing more than 200 juried fine artists. All artists will be displaying and selling their works, many of which will be created live. The exquisite collections showcased will include paintings, sculptures, murals, jewelry and other original works of art.

Various Deep Ellum musicians and artists will be creating and inspiring live, local art to happen as they keep the spirit of Dallas alive in the Deep Ellum, TX Village area at the open lot located at the corner of Main and Malcolm X Blvd. Food fares from popular Deep Ellum restaurants will also be available for purchase in this area.

The adult-oriented three-day festival, which will cover six city blocks of Main Street in Dallas’ Entertainment District, will also feature more than 150 performances including bands and solo musicians from all over Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond, performing only original music representing a variety of genres from four outdoor stages and two new indoor stages inside the iconic Sons of Hermann Hall.

This year’s festival will also feature street performers, jugglers and other whimsical characters throughout the weekend, along with Poetry Slam’s open mic.
