Jun 22, 2018 08:56AM ● By Ashley Madonna
The Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and the City of Arlington have announced a grand opening celebration for the highly anticipated Texas Live! From August 9 to August 12, locals can come out to enjoy the 200,000 square feet, $250 million dining, entertainment and hospitality district in Arlington.

On Thursday, August 9, the new location will host a grand opening VIP party – by invitation only. Then, they will open Arlington Backyard and Lockhart Smokehouse to the public at 7 p.m. Guests can stick around for a free concert featuring Toadies with Eleven Hundred Springs at Arlington Backyard at 8 p.m. Also at 8 p.m., Live! Arena, PBR Texas, Troy’s, Sports & Social Arlington and Guy Fieri’s new restaurant will open.

That Friday, the district will host the first, of many, Texas Rangers away game watch parties at 6:05 p.m. At 8 p.m., Bleachers with special guests Joywave will take the stage at Arlington Live. Then on Saturday, after another away game watch party at 12:05 p.m., Kip Moore will take the stage at Arlington Backyard.

If you want to bring out the kids, come out on Sunday for the district’s free family fun day. There will be live entertainment, arts and crafts, moonwalks, face painters, jugglers, puppets, sports games, giveaways and more. And if you RSVP in advance here, your family will receive a free bag of popcorn.

While some of the district’s amenities will not be open – like the 14-story Live! By Loews hotel coming in 2019, the area is sure to entertain the masses.
