YOUR GUIDE TO BASTILLE ON BISHOP
PRESENTED BY ORIGIN BANK
The Bishop Arts District is ready to once again transform into a charming Parisian thoroughfare, complete with spirits, games, music, and merchants.
Bastille on Bishop draws a large crowd. Please have your Prekindle ticket & ID available when you arrive to claim your glass & token packages.
New this year for the kids:
Le Theatre de Marionette! 30-minute shows are at 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., followed by puppet-making. Located in between 8th St. & Melba St.
Free water will be provided on the festival grounds by Methodist Dallas Medical Center, and a place to cool off will be provided by NOVEL Bishop Arts. Both are sponsors of Go Oak Cliff, and we’re lucky to have them!
PLEASE NOTE: street closures on Bishop Ave. from 7th St. through 9th St. begin on Sunday morning. Cars will begin to be towed at 7:00 a.m. This is a bummer part of an event like this that we want everyone to avoid. Thanks for understanding!
Bastille on Bishop Biking & Public Transportation
Bust out your bike and park safely at the Bishop Arts Bike Parking Corral right near Bishop Arts Street Market, courtesy of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff & BikeDFW. Please remember to bring your own bike lock! The corral will be monitored by volunteers from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m. (the duration of the event). Volunteers will provide you with a claim ticket when you park your bike. We also highly recommend public transportation, and DART's electric streetcar is not only free, it also drops off just a short distance away from the event entrance, at Zang and Davis. Service begins at 5:30 a.m. and the cars run until midnight, making connections with the final DART Rail trains at Union Station. Trains operate every 20 minutes.
A scooter drop point will be set up near the event, in areas that are within a mile of Bastille on Bishop. Throughout the night, Scooter services will be ensuring there are enough scooters at the drop point, as well as at the event entrance. (Worth noting: you need to download the Lime or Bird app to unlock them, and you must also have a driver's license.)
Listed below is a main scooter drop point, where you can park and ride.
Get your wine glasses and tokens early!
When: Saturday, July 13 from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Where: Taco y Vino, 213 W. Eighth St.
We’ll be inside and ready to admit you. Please note: You will still need to get your ID checked at the event, before receiving a wristband Thank you!
Entry to Bastille on Bishop
Redeem your ticket for a wine glass and tokens near DIRT Flowers, due just south of 7th St. on Bishop Ave.
There will be two types of lines at registration: “Pre-Purchased Tickets”, and “New Purchases”
Pre-Purchased Tickets: This is the line you should get in if you purchased your tickets on Prekindle.
New Purchases: Wine glass package prices increase by $5.00 on the day of the event! This is the line you should get in if you rolled the dice and managed to get a wine glass before they sold out (there will be very, very limited on-site availability. Fair warning!)
ALL lines serve as ID checks for those who picked up glasses and tokens early. Simply pick the lightest line, and get in it. You must have your glasses and tokens with you!
