Five Reasons to Leave Your Dallas Apartment This Weekend!

29TH ANNUAL GRAPEFEST
Okay, we realize you feel like you’ve left the state when you’ve drive more than 15 minutes outside of downtown, but this event is actually totally worth the trip to the ‘burbs. This is like a wine-a-palooza that gets better and better every year. BE sure to check out the GrapeStomp, the Champagne Terrace, Palate Pleasers at the Palace, and much, much more at the largest consumer-judged wine competition in the nation! Live performances on five different stages including Jonathan Fox Band which you may have seen at one of the Reunion Lawn Events this summer! Also downtown Grapevine is uber, uber cute!
When: September 17-20, 2015
Where: Historic Downtown Grapevine
DALLAS ARTS DISTRICT FALL BLOCK PARTY
Expect some traffic and some culture when the roads close down for the Fall Block Party tonight! This year’s event is the biggest one yet! Discover the Crow Collection of Asian ARt, Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center in a new way with live concerts, guided tours, local brews from the highly-anticipated Alamo Drafthouse Dallas and dessert from 15 gourmet food trucks. Parking will probably be troublesome, so just Uber from your apartment and save yourself the headache.
When: September 18, 2015 6:00 PM
Where: Dallas Arts District
2015 ADDISON OKTOBERFEST
This will be one of those events that you may initially overlook but then immediately regret not attending when you see just about everyone you know blowing up Snapchat with live footage from this huge event. This is known as the most authentic Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich. Over 70,000 people will be heading up the Tollway for music, folk dancing, sing-a-longs, German food, and of course, the bier.
When: September 19-20, 2015 Noon
Where: Addison Circle Park
GARTH BROOKS
Even if country isn’t your thing, you have probably heard at least some of the hullabaloo about this. Garth Brooks hasn’t made an appearance in Dallas in SEVENTEEN YEARS!!! In his ongoing World Tour he will be gracing Dallas with his charm for three shows at the AAC! You’ve probably seen all the hype on the Dallas Snapchat story.
When: September 18-19, 2015
Where: American Airlines Center
2015 PLANO BALLOON FESTIVAL
Okay, another ‘burbs event, but HEAR US OUT! This event is for thrill-seekers, wall-flowers, and everyone in between. Come for the 45 beautiful hot air balloons, stay for the local music, fireworks and Verizon balloon glow! You can also see the RE/MAX parachute team skydive and land right in the middle of the launch field!!
When: September 19-20, 2015
