There's Always Something to Do in Addison

With four signature events including Fork & Cork, Summer Series, Kaboom Town!, and Oktoberfest, plus several third-party events, Addison has more than 135 events throughout the year.


Designed for the epicurious, this two-day event offers some of the best local food and music in DFW. Fork & Cork will welcome James Beard Award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson to inspire culinary cravings, while legendary Texas musician Pat Green will light up the stage during the inaugural event. Attendees will also have the chance to get hands-on with interactive cooking classes, and brave guests can channel their inner sommelier or brewmaster with wine and craft beer seminars.


With hot happenings every Saturday throughout June, July and August, you can check out local musicians and performers by attending Series events, including Songwriter Saturdays, July Jazz and Cinema in The Circle.


Rated one of the top 5 shows in the country by USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and more, Addison Kaboom Town!® is the most explosive party of the year! Features dazzling fireworks choreographed to music and simulcast on the radio. Guests are also treated to amazing food and great live entertainment throughout the evening.


An authentic recreation of the Munich Oktoberfest, our event features more than 30 hours of continuous family-oriented entertainment. Serving special “Oktoberfest” Bier along with incredible German culinary fare, the festival also includes kid-friendly options like rides, midway games, a petting zoo and much more.
