19th Annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival

The festival will showcase more than 100 bands and singer/songwriters that will perform all original music from several genres including Indie, Jazz, Rockabilly/Punk, Electronic, Reggae, and Rock.

More than 200 visual artists will be in attendance this year showcasing their juried decorative and fine art.  Festival attendees are invited to purchase, commission, or merely admire the gorgeous creations.

A fan favorite with the festival is the tantalizing array of food offered by noted Deep Ellum eateries within the Crowdus Street “village”.

The festival is a very pet-friendly environment and the popular Deep Ellum Pet Parade will be held on Sunday, April 7 at 11:00 a.m.
