Fall Arts and Crafts Festival Returns to Richardson for One Weekend Only

The third weekend of October holds a special place in the hearts of art-loving Dallasians: that’s when Huffhines Art Trails takes place in Richardson.

One of North Texas’ top arts and crafts shows, the Trails began in 1976 as a way for local artisans to promote and sell their work.

Today’s two-day festival not only features a plethora of handmade treats for sale, but also live music, delicious food and drink, beautiful fall scenery and a spooky celebration of our four-legged friends.

The details
Huffhines Art Trails takes place October 16-17 at Huffhines Park in Richardson. It is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

What to expect
Stroll the park’s cobblestone paths and discover unique treasures with crafts, clothing, pottery, pre-packaged treats, produce, jewelry and more in the Market Square. Get started on your holiday shopping or just treat yourself to something unique.

Puppies on parade
Dress your dog in his best Halloween attire on October 16 for Pawtoberfest, the “pawty” of the year. Shop at dog-centric vendors, shop for puppy-inspired crafts, take part in the pet parade, and lick the competition in costume contests.

For $15 up front and $20 at the door, you can purchase a “pawkage” that includes a Pawtoberfest 2021 bandana, a 20-ounce logo beer mug, a free beer voucher, tasty treats for your puppy, $1 off all beer refills, and an information card.

But that’s not all
Live performances by local talent add to the already festive environment (you can see a full schedule here), along with dealers offering your favorite treats. From hot corn to coffee to corndogs, the list of food and drink vendors is vast and delicious.
