Panicking because you don't have a weekend in-Dallas date idea? Need to know what to do with the spouse and kids a few weeks in advance? This is your list. This list is also for those festival junkies that like to #festhard all year long. We've meticulously poured through 130+ websites to get you these official 2018 dates of 75 D-FW festivals as early in 2018 as we could. It's not everything, but those that have their dates listed on what should be their first place to disseminate info, their website.

These aren't just any Dallas-Fort Worth festivals & events either, this is a curated list of which 70% - 80% we've attended or promoted over the last 13 years. Thus, we can vouch for the festival or events' legitimacy. Secondly, to further authenticate this list, most of these festivals listed have stood the test of time. Except for possibly one or two of which 2018 is their inaugural year, many have occurred annually for many years (a handful for as much as 30 years). It took us living in Dallas, keeping our eyes and ears open, attending winners and the duds to identify some of the best that D-FW has to offer.
