The Deerfield neighborhood has long been recognized as a prime destination for Christmas and holiday decorations, but it is becoming equally well known for their spring music festival.
This year, the Deerfield Music & Art Festival is Mother’s Day weekend, on Saturday, May 9 from 6–9 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Professional musicians and singers will be performing throughout the evening, including Plano Symphony Orchestra’s brass quintet The Imperial Brass, a piano trio playing romantic classics, some of the area’s finest Broadway singers, and the extremely talented Addison Frei Jazz Trio accompanied by jazz singer Rosana Eckert.
Again this year Barry Samsula from WRR 101.1 will host the show, and Cru Wine Bar will be back to offer free wine tasting and food. There will also be art, kids’ crafts, and the PSO instrument petting zoo. What a great way to make Mother’s Day weekend memories with the family!
Festival founder Oliver Schaffer says, “The thing that has really pleased me the most about the Deerfield Music & Art Festival, is how the community has come together to make it go smoothly every
year and, of course, hearing many of the attendees at the festival relate how their experience exceeded their expectations. Who would have thought you could get such a high quality experience in our own community…and for free! Last year we had over 1,000 people attend from all over the DFW metroplex.”
To ensure a wonderful experience for everyone, festival planners request that guests simply RSVP at DeerfieldFestival.org. It is not required, but it will help their planning efforts as they offer the community a joyful celebration of spring, friends, family, art and music.
Deerfield’s gazebo park is located at 4549 Old Pond Dr., Plano. Visit DeerfieldFestival.org for details.
