Downtown Wanderland!

Join Downtown Dallas, Inc. for Downtown Wanderland, a multi-faceted experience offering a variety of ways to eat, drink, shop, and be merry for the entire season!

First things first, we’ve decorated Downtown to really get into the season.  Featured decorations include the Neiman Marcus Holiday Windows, holiday-themed B&Gs from the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Neiman Marcus Legacy Holiday Collection including the Car Tree at Pegasus Plaza and the Butterfly Garden at Belo Garden, as well as new decorative elements including a 20’ holiday wreath and new holiday tree at Main Street Garden.

Now that Downtown’s all decked out, you’re invited to join us for season-long programming that includes shopping, entertainment, and family-friendly activities, all set to live music, photos with Santa, and more!  We’re also hosting Wander Walks each Thursday evening featuring live music, DJs, live muralists, shopping, and more.

In addition to the tradition of shopping at Neiman Marcus, Downtown’s long-time retail anchor, shoppers will find many more participating retailers to find the perfect holiday gifts on their list.  Of course, participating restaurants, bars, and cafes will offer specials throughout the season to fuel holiday hunger.

And then there’s the pop ups!  Downtown Dallas, Inc. has partnered with Unbranded, a curated pop-up with over 20 brands to shop each week.  The founders of Need, Foremost, and Foot Cardigan, Matt Alexander and Bryan DeLuca, are providing free space at 1616 Commerce Street to a curated group of entrepreneurs, designers, coffee roasters, photographers, and artists.  Join Unbranded for weekly happy hours, DJs, live art, coffee provided by Method Coffee, and pop-up art galleries.

Also debuting this year is Park-It Pop-Ups, a series of unique rolling mini-boutiques rotating through Downtown public spaces like Pegasus Plaza and Stone Street Gardens.  Look for pop-ups like  Brad Oldham Sculpture, Charming Florals & Finds, Downtown Pawz, Kettledrum Allie, and other Downtown favorites.

Featured hours of Unbranded and Park-It Pop-Ups: Thurs – Sat, 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and Sun, 12:00 – 5:00 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday evenings for Wander Walks until 9:00 p.m. from November 19 – December 17.
