The Dallas Festival of the Arts at Kidd Springs Park in Oak Cliff and Kessler Park is a two-day outdoor local art and crafts event held on October 27-28, 2018. This will be our first in Oak Cliff – Kessler Park neighborhood but with proven success at Turtle Creek Arts Festival, we are certain it will become one of the biggest events of the year.  Located in the beautiful area of Oak Cliff/ Kessler Park. Kidd Springs Park is one of the oldest parks (70 years) in the Dallas region and is complete with a lake, pool, softball field and butterfly garden. Nestled among lots of trees, huge open green space, a wonderful duck pond and tons of visibility makes this an irresistible event for artists during a fall weekend. 

The Dallas Festival of the Arts is an event with an emphasis on the visual arts. Located in the Oak Cliff – Kessler Park neighborhood of Dallas, we set out with many different goals in mind: 1) Give back to the community through art; 2) Create a venue that emphasizes local and Texas artists, so they have a show they can depend on in their own back yard; 3) Bring a festival to the folks who enjoy creative minds and arts; 4) Create a festival for Artists by Artists, letting the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival; 5) Create a show unlike any other in the City of Dallas, bringing together outstanding local, regional and national artists.

The Oak Cliff area is rich with one of the largest and most enthusiastic art buying communities in the Dallas area. This event will feature up to 125 fine painters, photographers, sculptors, leather and metal craft persons, glass blowers, jewelers and more! The Festival will also offer visitors the opportunity to view artist demonstrations, enjoy live entertainment, participate in hands-on arts activities, and enjoy festival foods and beverages.

At this festival, there is something for everyone and best of all, it’s entirely free to attend!

We hope to see you there!
