Plus, Wellness, Outdoor Movie, and Market Events

BY // 10.06.22

Fall is back in full swing in Downtown Dallas, even if the stubborn Texas temperatures want us to think otherwise. Pumpkins, gourds, and football have finally arrived. Downtown Dallas, Inc. (DDI) has a full event lineup that has something for everyone to fall for this season.

From yoga classes to movie nights, these are the must-attend events in Downtown Dallas this fall. And all of these events are free when you RSVP!

Munich Street Garden.

Munich Street Garden

If you couldn’t swing the international trip to Oktoberfest this year, have no fear, Germany is coming to you in the form of Munich Street Garden at 1902 Main Street. On Wednesdays in October from 5 pm to 9 pm, DDI is partnering with local brewery Pegasus City Brewery for tastings (ages 21 and up), barrel races, Dachshund races, artisan markets, family-friendly games, and live performances starting at 7 pm each night. Luckily for you, unlike the price of a plane ticket to Oktoberfest in Munich, this event is free with RSVP.


Trick or treat on downtown streets is fun for all ages.

Trick-or-Treat on Downtown Streets

It’s not fall without Halloween. This year, join Downtown Dallas, Inc. for its 4th annual Trick-or-Treat on Downtown Streets. Starting at Main Street Garden (1902 Main Street) on Friday, October 28 at 4 pm, adults, kids, and pets can visit various participating downtown businesses that will have fun Halloween stations with trick-or-treat items. DDI will provide trick or treat bags to help you collect all your new swag. Whether you’re planning matching family costumes (including your pup) or planning to make a homemade costume that day at your desk, Trick-or-Treat on Downtown Streets is a fun, welcoming Halloween event for all.

Downtown Markets

There’s something about strolling through an outdoor market during the fall with a coffee in hand. This October, a variety of artisan markets will take place each Saturday throughout the month. The market season will kick off with its VIP Market on Saturday, October 1 from 5 pm to 9 pm at Pegasus Plaza (1500 Main Street) with local vendors and activities for both human and pet kiddos. There will also be another VIP Market on Saturday, October 22 from 11 am to 4 pm. Check Downtown Dallas’ website for each Saturday’s Market location and special hours.

The lessons consist of two, 30-minute sessions that will take place during the hour so you can come and go as your schedule allows.

If yoga is more your thing, you’re in luck this fall Downtown!


For yogis, Downtown Dallas, Inc. is partnering with Black Swan Yoga for “Turn Up Tuesday Yoga Nights” at Pacific Plaza (401 N Harwood Street) on Tuesdays in October at 7 pm for the perfect golden hour flow. This free, beginner-friendly flow is empowering, educational, and an overall good time. You can expect to sweat, be challenged, and connect with other neighbors. All levels are encouraged to join and make sure to bring your own mat.

Ballet Classes

If you’re more of a dancer than a yogi, the group is also bringing Ballet Classes to Main Street Garden (1902 Main Street) every Thursday at 7 pm in October with Pegasus Contemporary Ballet. This class is for all ages and experiences, and company dancers will guide you through an introduction to ballet, including all the basics.
