From country concerts to local vendor pop-up markets, these are the best things to do in Dallas this weekend.
Country star Dierks Bentley stops at Dallas’ Dos Equis Pavilion this Friday night on his “Beers On Me” tour — named after his 2021 album. He’s known for hits like “What Was I Thinkin'” and “Drunk on a Plane.” Tickets are available here.
On Saturday from 5 pm to 9 pm, head to Bishop Arts for a pop-up market from NOMAD Grills. The inaugural event features music, food, and more. Each “camper” receives free entrance to the event (RSVP required), and access to complimentary drinks and barbecue bites from Tate Farms and Zavala’s Barbecue. Cowboy Pools will be on site to take a dip during the evening, which also includes a free concert from Vincent Neil Emerson. Texas-based Camp Vendors include All Hands Cocktails, Topo Chico, Treat Oak Distilling, and more.
