Denton Redbud Festival
The award-winning Denton Redbud Festival is Denton’s Official Arbor Day celebration – promoting community beautification and Denton pride since 1994. The Denton Redbud Festival features dozens of vendors with tree and plant sales, gardening supplies, household items and local/handmade products, along with family-friendly activities and live, local music.
The Redbud Festival traces its roots back to an annual Texas Woman’s University Festival that was held from the 1930s until 1981 to celebrate the school’s beautification and tree planting efforts. In 1994, Keep Denton Beautiful gave the festival new life in honor of Denton’s designation as the “Redbud Capital of Texas.”
“To engage our community in creating a clean and beautiful Denton.”
For nearly three decades, Keep Denton Beautiful has partnered with Denton neighborhoods, businesses, community groups, and families to achieve their vision of a clean, beautiful, vibrant city.
Using the Keep America Beautiful model of community engagement, KDB works directly with Dentonites to inspire positive change, and provide residents the resources they need to leave a lasting mark on the beauty, health, and quality of life in their city.

- Dozens of vendor booths with plant sales, home improvement products and local/handmade crafts
- Special celebratory activities for Arbor Day
- Kids’ Zone with bounce houses
