Dallas vs. Green Bay Packers – Oct. 6 | kickoff at 3:25 p.m.

The first weekend of October really kicks off the fall season in Dallas. It's the second weekend of the State Fair of Texas – so you'll want to plan a trip to Fair Park for your Corny Dog and fried food fix. History bluffs, visit the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum to see the Presidential Retreats exhibit before it closes. Or score a ticket to Saturday's Tacolandia festival at the Dallas Farmer's Market and enjoy an unlimited supply of tacos and sip on your favorite cocktail.

Dallas vs. Philadelphia Eagles – Oct. 20 | kickoff at 7:20 p.m.

The Dallas – Eagles rivalry is always a highlight of the season. Prep for the showdown by checking off a few stops on the Margarita Mile. It's also your last chance to see the impressive Dior exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art before it closes on Oct. 27, or dive into all the fall feels at the Dallas Arboretum pumpkin festival. If you're an art lover, Sweet Tooth Hotel's Disturbance – An Immersive Theatrical Experience combines theater, dance and mystery for an immersive exhibit. If you're bringing the kiddos along, check out the Perot Museum's new Origins: Fossils from the Cradle of Humankind exhibit or visit the DFW Kids Directory Fall Festival at the Dallas Farmer's Market.

Dallas vs. Minnesota Vikings – Nov. 10 | kickoff at 7:20 p.m. 

Luckily, you can see two of Dallas' sports team play this weekend. Catch Luka Doncic and the Mavs on Friday night and the 'boys on Sunday. Get into the holiday spirit with the opening weekend of Holiday at the Arboretum and the garden's famous 12 Days of Christmas gazebos, or visit some furry friends and lights display at Dallas Zoo Lights. If you're interested in the arts, see a beautiful dance performance by Ballet British Columbia at the Moody Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District. Not in the holiday spirit just yet? No problem – stop by the Edge: The Texas Monthly Festival at the Bomb Factory to catch exclusive interviews and a live musical performance by Grammy award-winning Leon Bridges.

Dallas vs. Buffalo Bills – Nov. 28 | kickoff at 3:30 p.m.

Happy Thanksgiving! A Thanksgiving tradition for the Cowboys since the 60s, it's a special time to be at the stadium on this day. Get your turkey early at these restaurants serving Thanksgiving meals or enjoy the many concessions at the stadium (they've launched all new foods to try this season!) It's also the perfect reason to do some Christmas shopping – check out NorthPark Center and Galleria Dallas for the best holiday deals.

Dallas vs. Los Angeles Rams – Dec. 15 | kickoff at 3:25 p.m.

Holiday season is upon us and Dallas has tons of seasonal fun for everyone to feel festive. Maximize your Cowboys experience with a visit to The Star in Frisco; they'll have the plaza fully decorated in Cowboys navy and silver as well as holiday programming. Enjoy the family-friendly musical Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in the Arts District and take in all the holiday lights around Downtown Dallas.

Dallas vs. Washington Redskins – Dec. 29 | kickoff at 12 p.m.

It's the last game of the regular season, so we'll (hopefully) be celebrating the team into the playoffs. Fan of EDM? The Lights All Night festival is celebrating 10 years with an exciting the lineup that includes Skrillex, Bassnectar and many others. If you're staying through New Year's Eve, don't miss our inaugural NYE in Dallas: Party on the Plaza event featuring live music, food trucks and the perfect viewing of Reunion Tower's fireworks show
