The sun is hot, but the events for this weekend are hotter.
We have an awesome array of events for everyone embracing the Dallas heat, and why not? Who could turn down an invite to the Dallas Cowboys Training Camp, a Harry Potter Pop Up experience, or an Area 51 Pub Crawl?
Exactly, no one should stay indoors with all this stuff to do in Dallas. Grab your alien and other equally cool friends for a legit weekend.
ALOHOMORA! See what I did there? Use that spell with your wand and open up the doors to the Whippersnapper for the ultimate Harry Potter Pop-Up experience, The Leaky Cauldron.
For one month, The Leaky Cauldron will be leaking Harry Potter themed drinks, entertainment, characters, and wicked picture opportunities. We’re serious when we say it’s time to get out your Harry Potter inspired costumes and wands. We know you have been waiting for this moment since middle school!
The Leaky Cauldron opens August 8th and continues until September 7th with no entry fee, just an increase in your Instagram likes.
Football is back and we want to be as close to the action as possible. This means we will be attending the week-long Training Camp event that kicks off with an opening ceremony on Tuesday, August 20th at 10:30AM. Grab your favorite Dallas Cowboy fan gear and get to the field!
The Dallas Cowboys will be hosting five practices to provide us fans the opportunity to see the 2019 Dallas Cowboys players and coaches prepare for the upcoming season.
Not only will we get front row seats to their practices, but throughout The Star campus, there will be family-friendly activities, a movie night, and specials from The Star district retail, restaurants, and more.
This event week is a must-do for your whole family! Admission and parking are free. Need we say more?
Let’s get weird and gather them all for an Area 51 Pub Crawl. This will be the perfect opportunity to bring your alien along for an Earth-friendly event, but make sure your alien is 21+ because this is a serious pub crawl.
If you don’t have your own alien yet, no fears, the costume contest will settle this matter when you encourage (or force) your best friend to dress as your very own alien. That’s what friends are for, right?
The Area 51 Pub Crawl is on August 24th at 1PM and begins at Playground Bar Uptown, with a total of five participating venues.
There will be giveaways and drink specials at every stop to keep things completely out of this world. Tickets are $20 and available until the day of the event.
This weekend just got even weirder with a visit from Austin’s very own Austin Eastciders! It isn’t just a visit, it’s a cider block party, yall!
CultureHype & Dallasites101 are teaming up with the local favorite, Austin Eastciders, to give Dallas the ultimate foodie and cider experience on August 24th at 2:00PM within the Bishop Arts District. Grab your passport at check-in and get ready to visit a dozen varying restaurants, bars, and retailers with food tastings and full-sized ciders priced at $7 each.
General admission tickets are priced at $10 and $12 at the door. 15% of your ticket purchase will go towards the Bishop Arts District Merchant Association. Your ticket includes entry to the event to access food, drink, and retail specials.
Break out your dancing shoes, it’s time for the Vitruvian Salsa Festival! This Saturday, enjoy LIVE music from Havana NRG, DJs, salsa lessons, food trucks, and more. And don’t worry, a photographer will be there to capture all the special moments.
While the event is free to attend, parking is $10, cash only! You can find parking locations at:
Vitruvian Park – Bella Lane Parking Lot
Alfred J. Loos Sports Complex – 3815 Spring Valley Road, Addison, TX 75001
