All events are subject to change due to weather or other concerns. Please check with the venue or organization to ensure an event is taking place as scheduled.

Go Oak Cliff will present the 7th annual Blues, Bandits, & BBQ, benefiting KNON Community Radio and Mardi Gras Oak Cliff. The two-day festival will feature 30 barbecue teams showing off the best food they have to offer. In addition to the food and drinks available, the event includes a great music line-up in a nod to Oak Cliff’s history as the birthplace of legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn and T Bone Walker.
