This calendar contains a wide variety of events across the DFW Metroplex for all ages and interests. We hope you will use it as your central hub for planning your stay in DFW if you have travelled to view the Total Solar Eclipse or if you are a resident seeking to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

While the majority of the events are scheduled during the weekend before the Total Eclipse, others are programmed in the months leading up to the April 8, 2024 celestial event. Learn more about the Total Eclipse DFW here.

Event options include learning opportunities to help you and your family understand what happens during the Total Solar Eclipse, how to prepare and most importantly, how to protect your eyes during the lead up to and the aftermath of the period of totality.

Other events include music, arts, sports, celebrations, museums, businesses, food, local entertainment, tours and many others.

Total Eclipse DFW invited groups with events to upload the information to our site as a service to the community. We take no responsibility for the events, organizations/entities or any representations they have made. We provided the calendar only and are not liable for users’ experience with these organizations or events. By using the calendar on this website, you take full responsibility for your own dealings with the event organizers and posters.

With this understanding in place, we suggest you check back regularly to see additional events that have been posted. We expect the calendar to be updated more frequently by the community as the Total Solar Eclipse nears!

Solar Eclipse Viewing Party Picnic – Carrollton, Texas

Join us as we celebrate the Solar Eclipse with a drum circle around the fire!

What to pack for the Solar Eclipse Viewing Party Picnic:

  • Solar Eclipse Viewing glasses
  • Blanket or chair to lounge on
  • Picnic lunch and drinks
  • Drum if possible
  • Herbs, or paper to burn in the fire

We will meet in the Labyrinth and have a fire going as we drum and celebrate the perfect alignment of the sun and the moon. The Solar eclipse is a good time for banishing or releasing spellwork. You are welcome to toss herbs or something small into the fire. Don’t miss out on this rare astrological moment! Celebrate and make new friends as we come together to rejoice in the beauty of Nature!

All Are Welcome!!
