From kicking off Pride month with parties and variety shows to a food and music festival in Addison, these are the best things to do in Dallas this weekend.

Dallas Pride 2021

June is Pride Month. In celebration of the first weekend, Fair Park is hosting Dallas Pride 2021 — an in-person and virtual weekend of variety shows this Friday and Saturday. At Fair Park Coliseum, Marsha Dimes will host a show featuring performances by Jada Pinkett Fox, Uptown Players, The Roommates, Daphne Rio, and more. RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Kennedy Davenport will also perform on Saturday. All tickets are general admission, but VIP tickets include closer floor seating to the stage. Those who want to watch from home can attend virtually.

Live events are back at Double Wide Bar in Deep Ellum. On Saturday at 9 pm, Disco, TX is hosting a party with DJs Blake Ward, Charlie Presh, Ursa Minor, and Rizkalla. Drag queens Bleach, Frida Monet, and more will also be performing. Food will be provided by Easy Slider. The party is 21 and up and costs $20 to attend.

CANVAS Hotel is also hosting a rooftop Pride pool party on Sunday from 1 pm to 7 pm. Tickets cost $30 per person and include access to the pool, live music by DJs Angel and Dany Zalefsky, and more.
