Lamar Street Festival provides a marketable and effective way to engage in an area that is on the cusp
of high growth potential and that is blocks from the Convention Center, significant transportation hubs
and major regional hotels. The inaugural Lamar Street Festival is a dynamic demarcation of
the good things to come. At this time when Mayor Mike Rawlings and others lead efforts to further
communicate the important opportunities south of Downtown, Lamar Street Festival highlights a unique
neighborhood and destination point.
2013 is a threshold year for visionary sponsors excited to support a first year festival that will grow as
the area sees the following projects come to fruition:
    • Innovative South Lamar street improvements connecting the Omni Hotel and
    • Convention Center area to the South Side Cedars neighborhood
    • Belleview Street improvements and extensions linking the Trinity River Corridor to the wes with the Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park to the east
    • A Riverfront Blvd. development providing access to existing pockets of urban green space, the original Trinity River waterway, and stellar views of the downtown skyline
    • The opening of over 300 new residences along Belleview and Lamar
    • Increased transit-oriented development and foot traffic around the Cedars DART Station
Join us for a one day event and help make what is possible south of Downtown visible.
