The Dallas Arboretum Cool Thursday Concert Series is a popular annual event.
Held at the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn area overlooking White Rock Lake, nearly 2,000 guests come to hear local cover bands every Thursday evening from late April through the end of June. The series takes a break in the warmest months of July and August, then gets “back in the swing” in September and October.
