Enjoy music at the Riverfront Jazz Festival.

Groups of music lovers should grab tickets to the 5th annual Riverfront Jazz Festival in Downtown Dallas. Hosted by The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, this multi-day music festival brings international jazz artists to 3 stages in Dallas. Major musical acts this year include Erykah Badu, Avery Sunshine, and Eric Benét. The festival also highlights up-and-coming musicians on the Promising Young Artists Stage.

Groups shuttling to the festival in a private minibus rental will likely need to park in Lot E next to the center. This lot is the center’s marshaling Yard and is best suited for oversized vehicles.

Learn about local flora, fauna, and food at the Dallas Arboretum.

Spending an afternoon at the Dallas Arboretum can be a relaxing yet fun way to spend part of Labor Day weekend. The Arboretum has a Family Fun Weekend on the calendar with educational animal shows with visitors from the Dallas Zoo, craft beer tastings, and a family cooking class with Flour Power Studio. Visitors will also find live music and performances at Jeanne’s Pavillion throughout the weekend. Shows and live music are included with arboretum admission but you’ll need to register and buy tickets for cooking classes.

Book group tickets by phone or email and specify that you’llbe traveling by charter bus rental.

a group of friends toasting margaritas

Chow down on local bites along Margarita Mile.

Fun fact: Frozen margaritas were invented in Dallas! Restaurateur Mariano Martinez created the first frozen margarita machine in 1973 after being inspired by the 7-Eleven slushie. What sounds more refreshing than a margarita tour on a sunny holiday weekend? Just keep in mind that the Dallas Margarita Mile isn’t actually one mile of restaurants, but a collection of over 20 local spots across Dallas. So, having easy transportation is a must. You can hop around Margarita Mile hotspots with a private charter bus rental and built-in DD! If you’re looking to stop at just a few locations, Beto & Son, Meso Maya, and El Fenix are among the most popular stops! You can find the full list of restaurants included in the Margarita Mile on the VisitDallas website.

Charter bus travel tip: Finding oversized vehicle parking around each restaurant may be limited. Your driver may need to drop your group off at each restaurant before finding street parking on nearby roads.

Grab a few blankets and your loved ones to spend the holiday weekend in Klyde Warren Park! The Labor Day weekend will include free music during the Rhythm & Vibes summer DJ series and a silent disco. Enjoy local music and dance the afternoon away! If you work up a sweat and want refreshments, check out the wide selection of local food trucks. You’ll find food trucks at Klyde Warren Park nearly every day but the holiday weekend brings an even wider selection. Grab refreshing Italian ice or ice cream, enjoy a piping hot slice of pizza, or try international bites at Cuban, Vietnamese, and Greek food trucks.
