Fall in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is magical, and the festival calendar is absolutely studded. Accommodations at The Crescent Hotel, nestled in Fort Worth’s vibrant Cultural District and on the doorstep of downtown, gives you an enviable perch from which to take in these autumnal festivities, all across the metropolitan area.
Here are just a few examples of fall celebrations in DFW, though we understand we’re leaving out plenty of great events (not least of all the oodles of Halloween happenings). Think of this as inspirational fodder for your Crescent Hotel, Fort Worth autumn trip-planning!
Oktoberfest, Dallas-Fort Worth Style
If you’re looking to bring out the lederhosen and the dirndl—and work those stein-hefting muscles—you’re in luck: The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex knows how to celebrate Oktoberfest!
There are multiple versions of this traditional Bavarian bonanza, including the Fort Worth Oktoberfest, which happens this year September 21st through the 23rd in Trinity Park. Expect plenty of German eats and beer, plus live tunes from the Alex Meixner Band, the Walburg Boys, Happy Hour Oktoberfest Band, and others.
Then there’s Oktoberfest Dallas, taking place on September 30th at Flag Park Hill near White Rock Lake and featuring music from acts such as Cody Canada and the Departed, Hooks & The Huckleberries, Oom-Pah Daddies—plus, of course, all the brats, pretzels, and brews you could ask for.
Hwy30 Music Fest
At Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, the Gordy’s Hwy30 Music Fest: Texas Edition is a guaranteed good time from October 19th through October 22nd.
Some of the hottest names in country music and some stone-cold legends will be thrilling the crowds here, including Dierks Bentley, Cody Jinks, Zach Bryan, Koe Wetzel, Ashley McBryde, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Autumn at the Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens are a year-round treasure of the DFW area, and its fall festival is always worth checking out. This year’s Autumn at the Arboretum will feature a Pumpkin Village stocked with some 10,000 pumpkins, squash, and gourds from Floydada, Texas on the Llano Estacado, with a maze and other attractions—not to mention oodles of gorgeous fall blooms—only adding to the appeal.
