DALLAS — There is SO MUCH happening in North Texas this weekend, I’ll admit this list alone doesn’t do enough justice.

Taylor Swift’s coming to Arlington, Women’s Final Four is taking over downtown Dallas, Selena fans will be all over ArtPark and Fort Worth will be full of food and wine.

Here’s a little bit of everything going on:



Selena Remembrance Day (Dallas, all weekend)

ArtPark Trinity Groves is celebrating the life of the Tejano music queen!

The park will have plenty of ways to honor Selena’s life and music, from a look-a-like contest and a Cumbia dance class to cocktails a tribute “Paint Nite” (which you have to register for in advance).

Friday marks 28 years since Selena Quintanilla was shot and killed by her fan club president.
