The Dallas Festival of the Arts at Kidd Spring Park is a two-day outdoor local art and crafts event held on October 26-27, 2019. This will be the first in Oak Cliff | Kessler Park neighborhood at Kidd Springs Park which recently undertook an extensive renovation and revitalization of the park, but with proven success with 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 a 2-day celebration of community and tradition presented by the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, for people of all ages and interests.  

At this festival, there is something for everyone: Artist’s Market featuring fine arts and crafts, local food and beverage concessions and live acoustic entertainment.
