3. Fair Park Field Day (Fair Park – Dallas) – Every Saturday in June & July (9:00 AM – 2:00 PM) – FREE

Each Saturday in June and July, Fair Park Field Day at Leonhardt Lagoon aims to bring fun and joy to the park through “a free pop-up park experience as big as Texas.”
Attendees can take in the landscapes of the lagoon while enjoying lawn games, sports and free play activities. Little ones are welcome in the toddler area.

Get loose with yoga classes from Ruby Room Studio or participate in a drum circle led by the Dallas Music Collective. Get a little messy with artists from Sunset Art Studios or the Lunita Art Cart.

Enjoy a good read with an interactive story time led by the Dallas Public Library. See the animal kingdom up close through the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park, which will be bringing out its animal ambassadors from ball pythons and yellow-bellied sliders to soft shell turtles and toads.
End your field day with a State Fair of Texas staple — Fletcher’s Corny Dog — or pick up a popsicle from Steel City Pops.

Field Days are free with free parking at Grand Avenue/Gate 5.
