This award-winning community festival – Denton’s official Arbor Day celebration – will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will feature dozens of vendor booths with tree and plant sales, home improvement products and local/handmade crafts. The Redbud Festival welcomes attendees of all ages, and includes family-friendly activities including a Kids Zone with bounce houses, face painting, a live TRASHion Runway Show, educational workshops, and music performances throughout the day. Admission is FREE.
Festivities will include live music performances from Denton locals the A.M. Ramblers, Justin Weed, and others on the outdoor festival stage beginning at 10:30 a.m. A TRASHion Fashion Runway Show will take place at noon, showcasing fashions made from local designers to promote reuse, recycling and art. The TRASHion Fashion Program is offered by the City of Denton Solid Waste & Recycling Department, in partnership with the City of Denton Libraries, SCRAP Denton, and Keep Denton Beautiful. KDB printing partner Pan Ector Industries will be live printing t-shirts and other merchandise during the event.
