ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Come out and celebrate the legacy of the Dallas Firefighter's Museum. We are so excited to be back and with new and exciting partners for our annual festival. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Dallas Firefighter's Museum's capital improvements focused on protecting the firefighting history, fire protection, fire prevention, and all-hazards life safety.
This festival is extra special this year because we are celebrating three things:
Dallas Firefighter's Museum 50 years, Dallas EMS 50 years, and
Dallas Firefighter's 150 years. This is a year to celebrate.
We’ll have live music and specialty crafted beers by Community Beer – your favorites and some new ones that benefit the Museum’s historical and educational programming through our new capital campaign expansion. So gather your friends and family, and come out to the Ladders & Lagers Festival. We’ll have fun for the whole family including food, competitions, and vendors to enhance your experience. When it comes to great food and fabulous craft beers, put the Dallas Firefighter’s Ladders & Lagers Festival on your Must-Do-List!
