This weekend Richardson will be all abuzz with plenty of excitement for the whole family. Check out the Wildflower! Arts and Music Festival which starts this Friday, May 16 and runs through out the weekend. There will be plenty of stages set up for all musical tastes, along with your favorite artists from across the country, and of course, food of all sorts.
With six performance stages and dozens of concerts planned over the three-day eclectic extravaganza, Wildflower! will bring the best bands and singer-songwriters together in Richardson’s scenic Galatyn Park. Ticket prices include: Three-Day Pass for $30; Single Day Adult for $20; Kids Pass (age 5-12) for $3; and 4 and under are free. You may also grab group tickets $15 each for 15 tickets or more.
Some of the food vendors include top State Fair competitors including Taste of Cuba with their Cuban sandwiches and fried pork wings, The Skillet with beef and chicken fajitas, Conway’s famous corn dogs and funnel cakes, Crepe Crazy, Raising Cane, Satay Hut, and even Sonny Bryans. There are dozens of food options, and something for everyone.
The kids will have a blast touring through their special corner of the festival which includes a climbing wall, craft tent, a petting zoo, a natural butterfly habitat, and so much more.
All concerts, including headliners like Cheap Trick, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, The Wallflowers, and Kool and the Gang are included in the ticket price. Check out the complete list:
