Update: DFW Event Cancellations Due to Coronavirus

The recent outbreak of COVID 19 (Coronavirus) has completely changed things in North Texas. The extremely contagious nature of this pandemic has caused the city of Dallas and the state of Texas to take precautionary measures to stem the tide of this disease.

On March 19, 2020, Dallas City Council has extended the emergency declaration through May 15, 2020. Since Dallas County has banned public gatherings of 10 people or more, sporting events, concerts, festivals, and the performing arts are canceled or postponed. With City, State, and Federal agencies encouraging social distancing to limit our exposure to COVID 19, local attractions, movie theaters, and cultural venues like the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Arboretum and Texas Discovery Gardens are also temporarily closed.
