Get a little cozier with our neighborhood next month by attending one or more of these very Oak Cliff events.
Bar Politics, our neighborhood’s hyperlocal version of “The Daily Show,” returns to the Wild Detectives on Thursday, Sept. 3, at 8 p.m. It will be the housing and development edition. No one wants to miss that.
The annual Adamson vs. Sunset pep rally in the Bishop Arts District starts at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4. The North Oak Cliff Library hosts an after-school craft hour starting at 4 p.m. that day; kids and their parents can make pennants and signs to help them cheer on their favorite team.
Play Pride, the Bishop Arts Theater Center’s annual LGBTQ play-writing competition, is Sept. 10-20. Six one-act plays from different local writers and directors are presented, and audience members get to vote for their favorites. One winner receives $1,000.
The Oak Cliff Coalition for the Arts and DART celebrate Fiestas Patrias at the Latino Cultural Center in Deep Ellum on Saturday, Sept. 12. The celebration, from noon-10:30 p.m., includes an outdoor stage with live music as well as food and craft vendors. A “grito de Dolores,” the traditional celebration of Mexican Independence Day, starts at 8:30 p.m.
The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts hosts its Rising Star fundraiser Sept. 26-27. The society asks galleries in the Dallas area to invite artists who they think are promising but are not yet represented by a gallery to show their work. Last year, they sold 14 pieces, with 70 percent of the sales going to the artists. Tickets to a reception and gallery talk on Saturday night cost $50 for OCSFA members and $85 otherwise. A reception on Sunday afternoon is free and open to the public.
