Wow! Thank you all so much for attending our first Virtual Festival. Great things are here! Dallas hasn't been recognized to be as creative as our neighbors in Houston, TX, and Austin, TX. But here in 2020, we challenge that idea. Why? Because GREAT THINGS ARE HERE in Dallas. That’s why this festival was created and excelled.
Great Things Are Here is a space for Artists, Creatives, and Entrepreneurs to showcase their Music, Art, Fashion, Poetry and Creativity. So you know that our first GTAH Virtual Festival was nothing short of amazing! All of the Artists who performed put their best foot forward to showcase that Great Things Are Here!
