Artists in Motion Walk – Sunday, April 7th, 2019, 12:00 pm – 1:00pm

The Artists in Motion Walk sponsored by The Case Building and Deep Ellum Lofts will kick off on Sunday at 12:00 pm, starting at The Deep Ellum Artists’ Village Stage at Main Street and Malcolm X Boulevard and concluding 6 festival blocks later at the newly-branded Texas Fantastic Stage at Exposition Ave. Local Deep Ellum groups and fans of the hood including the Mav’s Drumline and students from Booker T. Washington will be spreading good vibes and positive energy, inspiring smiles and high-five’s as they stroll down the festival site. All are welcome to join, and we encourage the wearing of fun, colorful “artistic” costumes There will be marching music, colorful characters and of course, plenty of delightful surprises along the way. Well-trained, socialized pets and their owners are welcome to join the Artists in Motion Walk and art related costumes are encouraged for
both. For pet owners with pets participating in the Artists in Motion Walk, we encourage you to stop by one of the booths located at Hall Street and Main Street to pick up a goody bag for your furry friend(s)! We are better prepared for the additional needs of pets on Sunday, and the adjacent Deep Ellum Dog Park will be open. We encourage pet owners to bring out their well-trained and socialized pets on Sunday only.
