Created for the community by the community, the new Ramblin’ Roads Music Festival kicks off Friday, October 1-3 in Downtown Arlington.

Designed to promote the city’s designation as a Music Friendly City by the State of Texas and to celebrate its long history of live music at its venues through downtown Arlington (rather than creating stages in one area), Ramblin’ Roads Fest attendees can choose ‘how they festival’ by picking their own schedule of bands and events they wish to participate during the three days.

From concerts of all sizes (indoors and outdoors) with music representing every genre from Blues to Bluegrass, Rock to Country and EDM to Reggae, Jazz in the Park at the Levitt Pavilion, Urban Artisan Market at Urban Union, Youth Talent Showcase at Arlington Music Hall, Classic Car Show at Vandergriff Park with General Motors and Sunday Gospel Brunch with the Kirk Franklin Imagine Group at the 506 Restaurant at Sanford House Inn, the Ramblin’ Roads Music Festival is truly worth the “roadtrip” to Arlington.

Festival organizations say there will be transpiration options for attendees. You can learn more on those options here
