Things to Do in Dallas

Things To Do In Dallas This Weekend: Memorial Day and More

A long weekend means even more things to do.

For a guide to events that feel particularly suited to Memorial Day, go here. For more from our inexhaustible supply of things to do, a real ouroboros of event listings devouring its own tail in a cycle of renewal that feels older than time itself, keep reading.

Thursday (05/25)

X’s Los Angeles is 40 years old, so an anniversary tour for the legendary punk band feels appropriate. This victory lap takes the band through the Kessler.

It’s fashion. It’s 3D printing. It’s art. It’s an exhibition of work by Iris van Herpen at the DMA.

Dallas Theater Center’s new production of Inherit the Wind continues at Kalita Humphreys Theater.

Friday (05/26)

Tickets are sold way the heck out but you, too, can see U2 at the Death Star if you scrounge the secondary market. It’s an anniversary tour for Joshua Tree, so maybe it’s worth it.

Van Zweden conducts Elgar with the Dallas Symphony as part of the Soluna Festival. A second performance is Saturday night at the Meyerson.

Saturday (05/27)

Lupe Fiasco plays the Granada Theater.

The Thai Culture and Food Festival, which tastes, sounds, and looks better than just about every festival in Dallas, is at the Buddhist Center on Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday (05/28)

At last, a five-year project to stage readings of Shakespeare’s entire body of work concludes with the Bard’s sonnets at the Wyly Theatre.

Drink and judge margaritas at the Margarita Meltdown competition in the West End.

The Mountain Goats play Trees.

Monday (05/29)

The DSO kicks out the patriotic jams before a fireworks show at Flag Pole Hill for Memorial Day.

For more to do, go here. Enjoy your long weekend. We’ll be back Tuesday.
