There’s more music for Sundance Square.

Sundance Square officials announced today that Plaza Palooza, a free two-day festival produced by Sundance Square, will take place June 2-3 with a line-up of music, visual artists and entertainment options.

“We have put together an energizing lineup of visual and musical entertainment for North Texans to enjoy,” said Tracy Gilmour, director of marketing for Sundance Square. “This festival will offer adults the opportunity to experience emerging, as well as established, popular bands. Another exciting aspect of Plaza Palooza will be the 3D Street Painting artists from across the country who will create 3D scenes, whimsical portraits, and fictional characters under the umbrellas in the plaza.”

Professional chalk artists will begin their street paintings Friday, June 2 from 1 to 9 p.m. The 10 artists also will be in Sundance Square on Saturday, June 3 from 1 p.m. until they finish their original works of art, which will be on display throughout the weekend.

Along with the performers on stage, there will be strolling entertainment and photo booths on Saturday.

Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome during the concert. Beverages will be available for purchase from a craft beer tent during the performances and restaurants will be open throughout the evening.

“We are only able to offer complimentary entertainment in Sundance Square when visitors support the restaurants and shops during these events,” said Gilmour. “Therefore, we will not allow outside coolers and food. We hope we can grow this event to become one of Fort Worth’s annual festivals for the community to enjoy.”
