What To Do This Weekend
Four ways to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend
Every last Friday of the month, Oak Cliff’s Pike West Commerce Pavilion hosts Commerce Street Night Market. Take a stroll through booths featuring more than 30 local artists and vendors, listen to live music, grab a bite, and get a drink from the Oddfellows bar. (They’ll be serving up beer, wine, and watermelon sangrias.) Jason Olney from Oak Cliff Pottery will be doing pottery demonstrations from 7–9 p.m.
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.
If you love pups as much as we do, you won’t want to miss the Puppy Pool Party at Haymaker. They’ll have dog toys, splash pools, and drink specials for puppy parents, including free snow cones and $3 boozy snow cones. A portion of sales will go to Dallas Dogrrr, a non-profit helping rescue and rehabilitate dogs in Dallas.
The Details: 1520 Greenville Avenue. 2–6 p.m. Click here for more info.
A six-city tour presented by Willie Nelson, the Outlaw Music Festival is a fine opportunity to go country. The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Hayes Carll, and more perform. Of course, Willie and friends headline.
The Details: Starplex Pavilion, 3839 South Fitzhugh Avenue. Click here for the full lineup.
Keep the weekend going and get a jumpstart on the fourth during Red, White, and Boom on The Bridge. Enjoy fireworks on the Ronald Kirk and Margaret Hunt Hill Bridges downtown, complete with food, music, and live entertainment. Snag a spot early in the evening; this event is going to be packed.
The Details: 109 Continental Avenue. 5–10 p.m. Find out more.
