This Weekend in the Dallas Design District

It looks like there is going to be a lot going on this weekend in the Design District.  From Gallery openings and receptions, to a pop-up bar (pictured, at DEC on Dragon) and music festival. Unfortunately, the planned festival grounds are currently under water (which you can see here,) but the show goes on!—only now it is on the other side of the river. Make sure to check out our events calendar to see what’s going on in the area this weekend. You might even catch us at a couple of them.

Design District Market – November

We spent Small Business Saturday at the Design District Market, shopping from Texas vendors, drinking craft beer, grabbing food from the various food trucks, all while listening to some local bands.  With the sun shining on a beautiful November day, it was the perfect way to work off our Thanksgiving meals and dive into our holiday cheer.  Thousands of people spent the day with us at Community Brewery, and many left with the first round of Christmas presents purchased.


Our next Design District Market will take place Saturday, February 7, 2015.  Make sure to mark it in your calendars and stay tuned for more teasers of what will be featured.  If you are interested in being a vendor at the event or have questions about sponsorship, email
