The 4th Annual Festival at the Switchyard is a FREE outdoor event that provides visitors an opportunity to enjoy family-friendly concerts, shop festival booths, take a break in the beer garden or try a bite from our food vendors while the kids enjoy our craft area, zipline, bungee trampolines and more! New this year is our kid’s entertainment held inside the Plaza Arts Center. The Festival will be held on the streets of Historic Downtown Carrollton, just east of I-35 on the south side of Belt Line Road, mid-way between the George Bush Turnpike and LBJ Freeway.
