In celebration of Dallas Arts Month, the Dallas Arts District is closing the streets for a FREE block party featuring performances by celebrated Melbourne-based Strange Fruit, a performing arts company that produces and performs a fusion of theatre, dance and circus, using a unique elevated medium.

Dallas' Skyline High School Band kicks off the party at 6:00 p.m. followed by Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts' Gospel Choir.

Nab your spot around the Sammons Park outside of the Winspear Opera House for Australia's Strange Fruit's performance of The Spheres at 8:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Other block party happenings include performances by North Texas-based artists Jessie Frye, Bandan Koro African Drum and Dance Ensemble, Alebrije, The Bralettes, beats and threads by Durty Laundry DJ truck, one-of-a-kind items from a local Makers and Artisans Faire, live speed painting, dancing in the street and more!

Wet your whistle with local craft beers and libations from Alamo Drafthouse Dallas / Fort Worth, and grab a dinner or dessert from a variety of gourmet food trucks.
