Alright, Denton. Are you ready? We’ve got a big weekend ahead of us. March 7-10 will be full of great events right here in Denton. Right at the top of the list, of course, is 35 Denton (previously known as North by 35 and 35 Confederate). This four-day-long music festival will take place in Downtown Denton, closing down Hickory Street from Locust to Industrial to make way for their two main stages. As people mill around the downtown area, they’ll be able to stop by Square for some tasty bites, enticing drinks, great shopping, and while all this is going on, will also be providing everyone with live music by local artists Thursday through Sunday on the Courthouse-on-the-Square lawn.Denton Radio on the Square will enhance all the great music that is already going on during 35 Denton. Denton Radio on the Square will be an all-ages event, so feel free to bring the whole family to see all the great talent that’s here in Denton, any given day of the week.

storytellingHungry for more good old-fashioned family-friendly fun this weekend in Denton? Be sure to check out the 28th annual Tejas Storytelling Festival at the Denton Civic Center. The kids are sure to love this event. The storytelling will start Thursday night and go on all weekend long, ending on Sunday. Nothing captures the attention and imagination of a child quite like the age-old art of storytelling. With stories from the world, highlighting the folklore of Japan (with storyteller Motoko) and Africa (with DeCee Cornish) and more, the Tejas Storytelling Festival has a variety of tales to offer the ears of the curious.

There’s a little bit for everyone at the storytelling festival. Kids and adults alike will want to catch the Liars Contest to watch the best liars compete in a verbal slap down for a chance to win cash, and most importantly, some serious bragging rights. And adults wanting to learn a trick or two from the best should check out the workshops and master class being held this weekend. And there will be plenty of activities for the kids to participate in as well like meeting with the storytellers, and a family concert as well as storytelling workshops for the kids. Make sure to pick up your tickets on their website, and enjoy the family-friendly fun this weekend!
