Spring in Dallas-Fort Worth means festival season! Festival life in Dallas-Fort Worth is as diverse as the Texas weather. You’ll find that our spring’s blue skies and 65-degree weather bring with it a mosaic of things to experience across the region. This is your chance to try something new. Or explore something uniquely DFW. Whatever the case, spend a spring weekend doing what you love.
March 22 – 24 | Imagine a room. A very large room. It has about 400 pinball machines and classic video games set up to be played for a whole weekend — for free. Sounds like a dream come true, right? Well, The Texas Pinball Festival (held at the Embassy Suites Dallas – Frisco Hotel and Conference Center in Frisco) makes it a reality.
