Summer is very slowly coming to a close but the Dallas Arboretum’s Fall Concert series are just revving up. Sometimes even after we’ve changed seasons, it still feels summer-like in North Texas, but what better time to attend more outdoor concerts than in the fall when the temperatures are just right. Concerts at the Arboretum ran through spring and summer months, and now after a few weeks to break, the return in September with the 2011 Line-up. All throughout September and October Concerts at the Arboretum will take place on a weekly bases from 7:30pm – 9:30pm. So in addition to being the perfect park setting with the array of flowers, trees and even the nearby lake, the Dallas Arboretum is providing you with Live music by various bands. These are Free concerts, but will be worth your money for the entire family to attend and maybe even picnic together. The typical ticket prices for non-members are: $17 for kids (ages 3-13) and $25 for adults. Tickets can be purchased online, and all tickets are checked upon entry to the gardens. Season passes and Genre passes are also available. The Fall Thursdays Season pass gets you into 7 performances at $105 (non-members) or $42 for members.
The fall version of Concerts at the Arboretum will kick off with a Labor Day weekend Concert (& Picnic) at 7pm featuring the “kings of Texas swing” Asleep at the Wheel. Sunday September 4th it all begins at the Dallas Arboretum. After that the concerts will be every Thursday, throughout the months of September and October. Gates open at 6pm so you can grab your spots early and get all set up with your mats, blankets, picnic items, etc. The Dallas Arboretum is located at: 8528 Garland Road, Dallas 75218.
