Into The Weekend: Dallas Art Fair, Little Women at Dallas Heritage Village, and The Dallas Flea


Before we plow into the weekend goodness (and there’s lots of it), two quick reminders…

  1. Don’t forget to enter for a chance to win a one-day camp at Oil & Cotton. Go to this post for more details.
  2. You still have time to help this amazing mom by going to Saint Michaels & All Angels before noon today and registering to become a bone marrow donor.

Ok, now onto your weekend agenda. Ready?
Dallas Art Fair
First up, let me highly recommend heading to the Dallas Art Fair at f.i.g. stat. I attended the preview event last night, and, friends, the art is outstanding. Day passes are only $25 ($20 for students) and more than worth it, as the sheer amount of eye candy gracing the walls is mind boggling. In addition to works by big guns (think Chagall, Picasso,Chamberlain, Flavin, Motherwell, de Kooning, and more), there are countless amazing pieces by lesser known contemporary artists.The fair goes from 11-7 today and tomorrow and 12-6 on Sunday.
But especially intriguing for families is tomorrow’s inaugural Field Day from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. A joint effort of Dallas Art Fair and Nathalie Karg’s Cumulus Studios, the event will feature lawn games for the public to interact and play with, designed by prominent contemporary artists.
The Dallas Flea
Tomorrow from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., you could also hit the seriously stellar Dallas Flea at South Side on Lamar to shop for vintage and handmade goods like clothing, jewelry, art, food, toys…(the list is endless). Admission is $5 and worth every. single. penny.
Plow, Plant and Shear at Dallas Heritage Village
Last but not least, there’s a Little Women inspired event happening tomorrow from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Dallas Heritage Village featuring activities tied to the beloved classic novel. You can take a quiz to determine which March sister you’re most like, play a game of croquet, create a costume, and work in the garden. The activities will also satisfy some Girl Scout badge requirements. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for kids.


Happy weekend!
