What To Do This Weekend

A little of this, a little of that (and by “that” we mean ’90s alternative rock)


Commerce Street Night Market — It’s back! Friday marks the return of the popular event hosted by Little D Markets on the last Friday of every month at Oak Cliff’s Pike West Commerce Pavilion. Take a stroll through booths featuring local artists and vendors, listen to live music, grab something to eat, and get a drink from the Bolsa Mercado bar.

The Details: Pike West Commerce, 444 W Commerce Street. 6–10 p.m. Free for all ages—kids and dogs welcome. For more details, click here

Big Texas Beer Fest —
 Celebrating its sixth year, Dallas’ original beer fest is a great opportunity to sample beers from more than 120 Texas breweries under the same roof. There will be rare beers, special tappings, live music, and lots to eat

The Details: Friday and Saturday at Fair Park Automotive Building. See the beer list, band lineup, and buy tickets here


Edgefest — The radio station may be gone, but its annual kick-off-to-summer fest lives on. On its 25th anniversary, Edgefest showcases some of the biggest during 102.1’s heyday: 311, The Offspring, Toadies, and Blink 182. ’80s kids will enjoy the flashback (and those who grew up in Dallas can reminisce about Josh and The Adventure Club.)

The Details: Toyota Stadium, 9200 World Cup Way, Ste. 202, Frisco. Doors open at noon. Buy GA and VIP tickets here



Dallas Arts Week Kickoff  — Enjoy beer and tacos courtesy of the Dallas Art Fair and Erin Cluley’s Trinity Groves gallery at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Visit studios and see new work from photographer Nic Nicosia, making a return to Dallas after 11 years in Santa Fe.

The Details: Erin Cluley Gallery, 414 Fabrication Street. 2-3 p.m. Free; no RSVP required. Come one, come all. Find more events surrounding Dallas Arts Fair in our roundup
