Does your family love the shops and eateries downtown? Take advantage of Downtown Retail Happy Hour every Wednesday in June for discounts, specials, and coupons to use at some of your favorite places on the square.

Juneteenth Celebration | Fred Moore Park | Free | 5pm, 9am
Juneteenth marks the historic day in Texas in 1865 when Texans got word that slavery had been abolished. Denton does Juneteenth right with gospel music, a parade, and a softball tournament at this family-friendly celebration. This event is also happening on Saturday.
Saturday, June 20th
Children’s Activities | Denton Community Market | Free | 9-1
Explorium Denton is at the Denton Community Market where your child will be able to take apart electronics without having to put them back together. They call it “Tinkering” but you’ll call it brilliant.
Denton Air Show | Denton Municipal Airport | Free-$12 | 11-4
The Denton Air Show is one of the most exciting events in town. Load up on thrills and snow cones. Take a tour of Hangar 10. Bring your own chair and shade if you’ve got it. Oh-and did you know you can eat breakfast with the pilots at 8:00 for just $4? Those dollars benefit Cumberland Presbyterian Children’s Home in Denton.
Anyah Martinez is the mother of three busy boys and the founder of Explorium Denton, an emerging children's museum taking shape in Denton.
