The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden announces the fourth annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration on Saturday and Sunday, September 4th and 5th, with live musical performances, cooking demonstrations, food and dozens of vendors. The event is free for all paid garden guests, and advanced online ticket reservations are required. The weekend, Sept. 4-6, is also a Kelley Family Weekend, so visitors receive free admission to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, thanks to this family’s generous support.

To kick off the festival, on Saturday, September 4th at 10 a.m. in the Jonsson Color Garden, the garden will host a celebration of Quinceañera fashion and culture, where selected participants showcase their beautiful and colorful quinceañera dresses and share their favorite traditions and future plans. Afterwards, led by a mariachi band, the young ladies parade through the garden allowing even more guests to see their dresses.

Throughout the garden, the Dallas Arboretum has planned activities celebrating Hispanic culture and traditions including vendors, music and demonstrations.
