$1 All things Oak Cliff will converge at the second annual Cliff Fest in the Bishop Arts District where local artists, restaurants and businesses will set up shop. Roughly 75 booths will showcase exhibits, food tastings and information to help neighbors live local. “You can come out and try different restaurants without committing to a whole meal,” event coordinator Amy Cowan says. “You can get to know your local service providers, and you can also get to know your local artists.” The festival also includes handmade crafts, children’s activities and several live performances, such as the Sunset High School Bisonettes, Ballet Folklorico Hispano de Dallas and the Bishop Arts District Theater Center. The event runs noon-6 p.m. at Bishop and Davis. A $1 suggested donation will benefit the North Texas Food Bank. —EMILY TOMAN
