The city offers endless fun for visitors, and it’s a must-see destination for all things music, food, sports and culture. This September is a perfect example of all Denton has to offer and you have three weekends to choose from.
The University of North Texas kicks off its football season this September! Thanks to the DCTA and the DART, you can travel from Dallas to Denton for just a few dollars, then peruse the local breweries, restaurants and hot spots in Denton before going to the game that night. I recommend hitting up Armadillo Ale Works, which offers tours of their endlessly delicious and decadent brewery every Saturday.

The annual Arts & Autos Extravaganza is a fan favorite for many reason. First, for all you auto enthusiasts out there, it’s a great day to view classic and custom cars in addition to motorbikes. Dozens of old-fashioned cars will line Main Street for your enjoyment. Second, Arts & Autos is also the perfect time to enjoy local art and live music — all while playing games with friends and family. Oh, and did I mention it’s FREE?

This Quakertown Park party perfectly captures Denton’s cool vibes. Every year, jazz musicians from across North Texas and the U.S. converge in Denton to play a two-day fest hosted by the Denton Black Chamber of Commerce. It’s a family-friendly event complete with games and activities for kids of all ages, so join jazz lovers and Dentonites for a weekend in the park that would make Chicago envious.
