Fall Block Party in One Arts Plaza Dallas – Oct 14th

7 Oct

Recently Mother Nature decided to slash our temperatures in half (making our usual lows higher than our average highs); the State Fair is open for business, and football season is in full effect with the Red River Rivalry and chaos at the Cowboy Stadium, which can only mean one thing – FALL is upon us! Even though we know this kind of cool weather could only last so long in Texas, we’ll enjoy it while we can. One way to do this is by having outdoor events to help our bodies adjust to the change in season before going into full shock. DFW Fall festivals are being planned all across the metroplex and the Dallas Arts District is no different. Sunday, October 14th they will be having a FALL Block Party at One Arts Plaza. From noon to 4pm North Texans of all ages can enjoy cinnamon flavored and pumpkin spiced treats, 5 featured plaza chefs and a variety of specialty food vendors. You can look forward to more than just tasty food though. There’s something new to look forward to each hour of the party. Take a look at the schedule for the 3rd Annual FALL Block Party in One Arts Plaza.


SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30TH

12:00pm

Ring in the autumn season the right way! Head downtown for a block party that has it all, from the tasty delights of skilled Plaza chefs to pups in Halloween costumes. Enjoy some free samples, live music, crafts, more than 15 vendors and even luxury cars all on the plaza this Sunday at the 2012 Fall Block Party One Arts Plaza Dallas! Pets welcomed!

Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market Dallas – Fridays in October

5 Oct

You’re about to have another reason to #TGIF! Every Friday in the month of October the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market will be open for business! What IS that you might ask!? It’s a weekly market located in Downtown Dallas that will have live music, fresh produce, handmade crafts and other cool stuff, all at the fingertips of downtown employees and YOU if you dare to venture downtown on a Friday. Teaming up to sponsor this weekly outdoor October special, if you will, is The Deep Ellum Outdoor Market and Downtown Dallas Inc. If you didn’t know already, Pegasus Plaza is located at the corner of Main Street and Akard. To apply be a participating vendor at this market click here. The main purpose of the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market is giving downtown workers an exciting alternative to the normal lunchtime experience. I personally think they’re trying to push people outside of their cubes, into the fresh “fall” air and expose them to the Central Business District. They’re doing this between the hours of 11am and 3pm, just in time for that 3 o’clock slump. Yeah you know how that goes. We’ll see who’s taking extra long lunch breaks every Friday this month. When it comes time to point the finger, blame Downtown Dallas Inc. and Deep Ellum Outdoor Market for the afternoon distractions.

Pegasus Outdoor Market is sponsored by DEOM & Downtown Dallas Inc

Not only is the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market trying to bring people to the streets of their neighborhood, they’re also making an effort to give exposure to their local artists and businesses. How’s that for cultivating an artistic booming community? Deep Ellum is such a unique community itself that it needs the support of people throughout the Metroplex who also share the desire for an alternative to DFW’s mainstream. Here’s some instruction on how to get your own booth and become a vendor.

The Dates for the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market are October 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th. It looks like the Outdoor Market will be back in November & December as well. Check here for future Market Dates.

Now try saying “Pegasus Plaza” 8 times fast! Orrr just head downtown on your lunch break (unless you work in Arlington or Grapevine or something) and enjoy the closest thing we have to our own little “New York City” before you become too tongue tied. I swear, if Dallas doesn’t stop trying to become more downtown busy-city-like…Our New Years Eve celebration is already getting bigger and bigger each year filling the streets of Victory Park. What will they come up with next?! Talking pigeons with New England accents like on Bolt?! Stay tuned….because at this rate, it’s definitely possible.

Stay clicked in for the next market Oct 15th at Indiana Boulevard. Deep Ellum Outdoor Markets will be every 3rd Saturday of the month for the rest of the year!
