Sweater weather it’s not, but it is Fall in Oak Cliff, and that means its outdoor event season. If your weekends aren’t already booked from now to Thanksgiving, here are five events to give you that old autumn feeling.
The North Oak Cliff Music Festival is Saturday, Oct. 25, at Lake Cliff Park. Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians headline, and there is music all day, starting at 11:30 a.m. Tickets start at $25, and you can bring the whole family for $50.
The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group’s big fundraiser, SpareParts, is from 6:30-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 at Manny Rodriguez Photography Studio. Tickets cost $25, and proceeds go to public art.
The fifth-annual Blues, Bandits & BBQ returns to Kidd Springs Park on Saturday, Nov. 15. This year’s event starts with a 5k at 9 a.m. Wristbands to taste the barbecue and vote in the people’s choice contest cost $20. But it’s free to hang out and watch the bands.
Art Conspiracy started in Oak Cliff as a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims in 2004. This year’s Art Con X, at 500 Singleton, benefits Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico. General admission tickets cost $10, and 50 VIP tickets are available for $125.
