24HourDallas Ignite the Night Festival


The 24HourDallas strategic plans sets this goal for our Cultural Innovation team: We need more arts and cultural experiences that will invigorate and demystify the night … and bring us back into a community.

In response, our volunteers are creating the 24HourDallas Ignite the Night Festival to take place on a to-be-announced April date during Arts District Month, 2022.

The event will be held at Thanks-Giving Square in the heart of downtown Dallas.

With performances from the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture’s CAP Artists, a night market, and delicious food offerings, the Ignite the Night Festival will reflect Dallas’ many cultures in a free nighttime celebration for all ages.

The 24HourDallas Ignite the Night Festival is presented by Central Market.

Additional sponsors include the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, its Community Arts program, and Thanks-Giving Square.
