Rider Insider: Find things to do this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth

You’ve read about Science Day at the Dallas Zoo and the State Fair of Texas, but there are even more events and activities to DART to this weekend.

• Ride the DART Rail Green Line to Deep Ellum Station or Baylor University Medical Center Station this weekend for INDEX Fest, the ‘day-party style’ indoor/outdoor event that takes place in the historic Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas. The event features two outdoor stages and utilizes all of the premier venues located on legendary Elm Street – including Trees, Club Dada, Three Links & the Prophet Bar – for a total of nine stages. Over the weekend the two outdoor stages will feature more than 22 acts with over 60 additional acts performing at the various indoor venues. There will also be food trucks, beer gardens, craft vendors and several featured restaurants participating in ways that provide the event with additional vibrancy and texture.

• Ride the DART Rail Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line or Orange Line to St. Paul Station Sunday for the 8th Annual Fiesta Latinoamericana presented by the DFW International Community Alliance. This free, family-friendly cultural celebration features two stages of music and dance, children’s workshops, a parade of nations, and a host of interactive activities.
