This year’s festival is scheduled for May 17-19 at Galatyn Park Urban Center, which is located just north of Galatyn Parkway on the east side of US 75. In addition to concerts from local, regional and national acts, the festival features street performers, a battle of the bands, a songwriting competition, a marketplace filled with local and regional goods, kids activities, and more.

Tickets can be purchased online and cost $25 for a Friday-Saturday pass and $10 for a Sunday pass through May 17, after which the price will increase. Discounted $18 tickets for Richardson residents can also be purchased in-person at the Gymnastics Center, the Heights Recreation Center, the Huffhines Recreation Center and the Senior Center through May 18. Children age 12 and younger will receive free admission.

The background

The festival first started in 1993, according to the Richardson Historical and Genealogical Society. Last year, despite being down a stage for performances, having five fewer headlining acts and dealing with weather-related impacts on one of the days, the three-day festival drew in more than 15,060 attendees, generating more than $608,000 in revenue.
