Our Past Arts & Autos 

During past Arts & Autos events, approximately 10,000 attendees check out hot rods, classic and custom cars, trucks and even motorcycles! We give out around 75+ trophies in car, truck and motorcycle classes. Plus, cash prizes for Best of Show winner in car, truck and motorcycle class.

We look forward to this year's Arts & Autos returning where attendees will enjoy an array of activities throughout the day, including a silent auction inside the courthouse, fine arts/crafts vendors, hands-on arts/crafts and games, Chalk Fest and live music.

As always, it's a privilege and honor to provide this historic event to—and with—the help of our community. 

Wassail Fest

Wassail Fest is a 2-day tasting event. What is Wassail? Well, it's just a fussy old English word for hot cider. Some downtown merchants stir up their best recipe to give free tastings for all ages. They are competing for the public's love and approval of their Wassail and bragging rights, of course. It's all fun and a great time out with friends and family.

The Denton Main Street Association merchants first hosted a Wassail tasting event in 1999 with the intention of giving the attendees at the annual tree lighting a little something warm and yummy for the festivities. What started out as a small, friendly competition among merchants has now become one of the most anticipated holiday treats in Denton.
