The festival will be free on Saturday, November 18 to continue Deep Ellum’s 150th anniversary celebration WFAA’s Tashara Parker will host.

DALLAS — “150 years of culture. 50 years of hip hop. 1 Deep Elam Day.”

That’s the best way to describe the first-ever Deep Ellum Music Festival, held in November.

The festival will be free and family-friendly as it celebrates the culture and talent of the entertainment district. These include rock band Bowling for Soup, who will headline the event alongside Doug E Fresh and Reverend Run of Run-DMC.

BFS band member Jarrett Reddick says that when the band formed in Wichita Falls, they played a lot of shows in Deep Ellum when they first started.

“Honestly, when I think of Deep Ellum, it’s like thinking of home,” Reddick said. “We got a family that accepted us and more than that, supported us, even though we didn’t sound like anyone else on the scene. I still get that feeling when I play there. A huge part of Deep Ellum Dallas was Bowling for Soup, is, and will be.

The festival starts at 12 noon. to 8 p.m. Saturday, November 18, at the corner of Main Street and Good Latimer Expressway. WFAA’s own Tashara Parker will be hosting special guests throughout the day.

The Deep Ellum Music Festival continues its 150th anniversary celebration that continues throughout the year.

The neighborhood was recently recognized as a Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places. Organizers also opened a new community center with a permanent “When You Go Down in Deep Ellum” exhibit.
