This Sunday is our 2nd Block Party where we close off our plaza for pedestiran-only traffic and set up a myriad of vendors including dairy products, fresh vegetables, breads, chocolates and more. Since it's Halloween we'll have face painters for the kids, a balloon artist as well as floral vendors, artists selling their unique goods and live music including the famous and fabulous Hunter Sullivan jazz band. This is one of THE best weather months in Dallas and One Arts is a fabulous place to spend an afternoon in the sun relaxing on our patios surrounding the dynamic fountains. Our four restaurants will be hosting cooking demos with free samples as well as food carts selling all sorts of Fall goodness. Plus, Cadillac will be featuring several of their luxurious vehicles with specialists on hand to answer questions and offer free test drives! It's a big day in the Arts District so come join us for an afternoon of Halloween treats! Click here for a full schedule of events.

Sorry guys, we've been absent a while but we're back & psyched with this ah-mazing Fall weather! Our patios are full of people sitting back, relaxing, enjoying the sunshine and fountains and cool breeze. We've got live music now every Thurs - Sat evening (7-10 pm) for the rest of October and throughout November and we'll pick a few dates in December depending on weather.
Okay, so mark your calendars for our second Fall Block Party on Halloween, from 11 am - 3 pm. We'll have the plaza closed off for pedestrian use only (love since hardly anywhere in Dallas do you find this), some live music, farmers market vendors, artists, cooking demos and this time we're spicing it up with a CHEF COOK OFF at noon and then a BARTENDER MIX OFF at 1:30 pm. We'll have a panel of judges but everyone will also be availble to try samples and vote. It's FREE (restaurants of course will be selling food as well) and it's in the beautiful Arts District which will also be full of life with events taking place at each of the major institutions (face painting, choir sing-offs, live outdoor performances, food carts, oragami making, films, + more). Oh, and Hunter Sullivan will be performing live at 3:30 pm. So come out and join us on Sunday, Oct. 31.
