Downtown Dallas will be a busy place this year with many scheduled improvements to the infrastructure and appearance of the area. After more than 10 years of great memories plus support from sponsors, volunteers and the community, we're putting the 2015 Harvest Festival on "pause" while the work is underway. Read more about it in the letter from the Dallas Harvest Festival Executive Committee.

Fun! Fun! Fun! Harvest Festival Draws Big Crowd
What an amazing day it was to be in downtown Dallas for the Dallas Harvest Festival! The weather, the sights, the smells, the vendors, the farmers, the dancers/singers/performers, the butterflies! Wow!! Thank you Back Mountain, sponsors, participants, vendors, growers, and most of all neighbors and friends for supporting and coming out to enjoy the festival. We live in a wonderful community with great community pride. There were lots of things to enjoy and lots to take home as reminders of a lovely day -- balloons, goodies and free photos from the photo booth!!
