- This year, the Dallas Festival of Ideas and the Dallas Book Festival will unite to focus the power of smart thinking on ways to make Dallas The Equitable City. On Saturday, check out the Dallas Book Festival at the Dallas Public Library’s Central branch. There’ll be cultural performances, activities for kids, and author readings. The Dallas Festival of Ideas is all about taking steps to shape the future of Dallas by uniting and energizing people through the power of ideas. Panels discussions, performances, art installations, activities, and information booths will be set up at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Don’t worry about walking back and forth between the library and the convention center. Convenient shuttles will be available to connect you to both venues.
- Also on Saturday, head to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth to see the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra’s final show of the season.
- Throughout the weekend, Southlake Town Square will be getting artsy with live music, tons of visual artists and family entertainment. Check out Art in the Square.
- Finally, on Sunday, obsession turns deadly as passion for a gypsy temptress pits a bullfighter against an army corporal in Fort Worth Opera’s production of “Carmen.” It’s part of the Fort Worth Opera Festival and you can see it at Bass Performance Hall.
