— The Experience —

Eat delicious food.
Chill with cute adoptable puppies.
Get tangled up in an art installation.
Watch a muralist paint a masterpiece.
Make your own masterpiece.
Explore the vendor village.
Take the perfect selfie.
Dunk a politician.
Be angsty.

Come let loose with friends, make memories, get nostalgic as hell, and bask in the good vibes.

Cherish the amazing fall weather. Historically it’s between 75º and 60º F on this date (and thank goodness because we hate music festivals where you sweat through your shirt, like yuck dude.)

ARTIST UPRISING VENDOR VILLAGE

Enjoy a great selection of local artisans, curated by local startup and artist collective Artist Uprising.

PUPPY PETTING ZOO

Take a break from the music and hang out with some of the sweetest lil puppies you have ever seen. They are all adoptable too, so you could (and should) take home your new best friend. Good boy.

DUNK A POLITICIAN. FOR CHARITY.

Let out your frustration at the current political climate by throwing some balls at our Politician Dunk Tank. A donation to charity gets you a chance to dunk Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, or perhaps even one of our local politicians.

SATISFY THY HUNGER

We’re bringing in some dank food trucks, with delicious fare for everyone, including vegetarians, vegans, and people from Oklahoma. And Gas Monkey Dallas will have their kitchen open, serving incredible American options.
