Earth Day Texas Brings Best of Texas Together and DART is Your Ride to Festivities

RGL_2942The world’s largest annual green exhibition – Earth Day Texas (EDTx) – kicks off today at 10 a.m. at Dallas’ Fair Park. The free celebration runs through Sunday and is open each day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDTx has something for everyone and DART is the best way to get there.

New to EDTx this year, the Savor Sustainable Food Market and Untapped Sustainable Beer Pavilion, will offer visitors the best tastes and beers from locally sourced restaurants and responsible breweries. Other highlights include exhibits, speakers, live local music, a KERA Family Zone and an eco-film series. Weekend highlights include talks by leaders and luminaries such as Ted Roosevelt IV, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Karenna Gore and Space Architect Constance Adams.

Local Texas artists will take the stage today from 2:15 to 5:45 p.m. and will provide hours of entertaining music all weekend. The live music will continue daily on Saturday and Sunday, with acts running back-to-back from 12:15 to 5:45 p.m. This year’s lineup will feature Michael Martin Murphey, Kinky Friedman, Mountain Natives, Telegraph Canyon, The O’s, The Tontons and more.

With more than 1,600 exhibit spaces at this year’s event, friends and families can experience fun, easy-to-navigate, interactive and educational events and activities.

To reach Fair Park, take DART’s Green Line to Fair Park Station, located on Parry Avenue at the entrance to the fairgrounds, or MLK, Jr. Station, located south of R.B. Cullum Boulevard and a block from Gate 6, which is near the Cotton Bowl.
