    Jazz: More than a Four-letter Word

    As you walk throughout Quakertown Park, the sound of trumpets trill in your ears; little girls run around with fairy wreaths in their hair, ribbons blowing in the air behind them; a family rests under a large tree enjoying the shade while deciding which stage they will venture to next; delicious smelling tasty treats lure you through the crowd toward myriad […]

    THE MAGAZINE

    Letter from the Mayor

    Denton recently ranked first of only two Texas cities on Livability.com’s 2014 list of the “Top 100 Best Places to Live in America,” coming in at number 55 nationally. It’s clear that the word is out: Denton is vibrant, hip, safe, creative, artistic, historic, original, independent and a happening place to live and visit.

    Downtown is dynamic, teeming with local musicians and artists showcased among 25 live music venues located within two blocks of our celebrated city square. Some of our most significant regional  events like the Thin Line Film Festival (now including a live music component to complement the 80-plus documentaries) and the giant, three-daylong, seven-stage-large Denton Arts & Jazz Festival spotlight raw creativity at its best.

    While music is a major theme in Denton year-round, spring and summer bring numerous events that highlight other attributes of our city. Cinco de Mayo and Juneteenth celebrations focus food and fun around cultural and historical commemorations of our nation’s diversity exemplified in Denton’s own rich heritage. Dog Days of Denton honors man’s best friend. The Denton Air Show boasts  aerial daredevils and stunt pilots at the Denton Airport, Texas’ eighth largest.

    Spring is a perfect time to try the A-Train, our two-year-old commuter rail connecting visitors between Denton and the rest of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Big city musical shows, theatre and  dining opportunities are clustered within blocks of each other in the new Hickory and Industrial Street arts and entertainment corridors, a short walk from the square. Our galleries offer world-class art  of every medium, and our international award-winning live theatre productions are far beyond that of other cities our size.

    Our two great universities are at the heart of our unique vivacity. Drawn by our creative wealth and energetic vibe, University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University students fuel Denton with a perpetual stream
    of new talent. While we are one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, we cherish our character that
    says, “we’re still small enough to be people-friendly with a ‘care about your neighbor’ attitude.” Our safe and conveniently-located entertainment venues, parks and public facilities make Denton a truly walkable city.

    While other cities try to replicate old-town charm, Denton’s famous 150-year-old courthouse square is like a Norman Rockwell painting, but one set to jazz and indie music. It has character. And it has characters. But it’s not as much the personalities of this place as it is the personality of Denton that hooks you. I love it here. We all
    do. And I believe you will, too.

    Now, relax and kick back. Then come out and experience for yourself why Denton is the place to be.

    Mark Burroughs,

    Mayor of Denton
