  • In Dallas, the Cara Mia Theater company shines a light on a student led civil rights protest in South Texas in the play, “Crystal City 1969.” The play shows students standing up for their rights and inspiring their parents to do the same. It’s on at the Latino Cultural Center.
  • Also in Dallas, you can head to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church for a festival of all things Greek including music, dance, and food at the Greek Food Festival of Dallas.
  • In Denton, the Oaktopia music festival wraps up with a bevy of activities. There’ll be a food truck extravaganza, a day-long gaming tournament and performances by headliners Best Coast and Pete Yorn.
  • The Irving Public Library is hosting a conversation about the meeting of Hispanic and Anglo cultures in the United States at the Irving Arts Center for their “The Big Read” series.
