Wildflower! Festival Offers Springtime Fun



The Wildflower! Art & Music Festival is still a ways off but with a line-up featuring Kool and the Gang, Cheap Trick, Foghat, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Loverboy, Jack Ingram, Michael Murtin Murphey, Marcia Ball and The Wallflowers – among others – it’s never too early to get your tickets for this must-see springtime event. The award-winning arts and music festival, sponsored in part by Ebby Halliday Realtors, takes place May 16-18 at Galatyn Park in Richardson.


This year’s festival features six performance stages, the Wild! Marketplace, the Taste of Texas Food Garden, the family friendly Kidz Korner, and a whole lot more. The Art Guitar Auction of celebrity-donated, decorated guitars will be on display at the nearby Eisemann Center for the duration of the festival.


The festival’s three-day pass ($30) is on sale now at any D-FW Tom Thumb store or at WildFlowerFestival.com. Single-day adult tickets will be available at the gate for $20, or through the festival’s website. Kids age 5-12 are $3; and admission for kids 4 and under is free.
