Events in Free Events

If it's free, it's for me! A trip to Dallas doesn't have to break the bank. From free admission at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Crow Collection of Asian Art in the Dallas Arts District to the numerous free events taking place every weekend, your guide to a weekend of free things to do starts here. Check out the activities schedule at Klyde Warren Park, one of the most popular parks in the city, to see what's on the lineup during your getaway to Dallas. And you can't leave without getting some great skyline shots from around the city. Pro tip: Start in Trinity Groves -  the view from the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge is worth it!
