Wildflower Music & Arts Festival
|Country and Region||United States — Texas|
|Type of Festival||Music|
|Location of Festival||Richardson, Texas, USA|
The Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival began as a small community event in 1993 held in a local park in northeast Richardson, Texas. Since that time the festival has become the premier music event in the area. Originally a community event designed to celebrate the acres of wild flowers planted throughout the city each spring, Wildflower! quickly “blossomed” when national headlining entertainment was added after only the second year. Growing crowds and subsequent logistical challenges lead the event to its first move to the Greenway Corporate Office Park at US 75 and Campbell Road. Here the event was able to expand with multiple stages, over 30 acres of arts, music, and family activities.
In 1998, the Wildflower Nights! Program was added, bringing an additional weekend of concert-style entertainment to the event. Wildflower Nights! featured evening concerts in an amphitheater setting and the program quickly gained popularity as bigger and better artists were added to the lineup each year. Performers include local and national musical acts performing the best in classic rock, R&B;, Texas blues, funk, pop, alt-rock, folk and Americana.
