Free Community Events

Discover the vibrant Dallas arts scene and experience local cultural events for free! These regularly occurring events are designed to bring our community together and expose our neighbors to all that the arts have to offer.

PNC Patio Sessions

On select Thursday evenings starting at 5:30 p.m., guests can enjoy the best happy hour has to offer – live music, beautiful scenery, fun games, putt-putt golf, snacks and (of course) beverages. The free concerts featuring local artists are held on the patio outside the Flora Cantina in Sammons Park.
