By  | 

At more than $1.25 billion in development (according to Reed Cordish, of The Cordish Companies), the Grand Opening for Texas Live! will be happening on Thursday, August 9 through Sunday, August 12. The announcement was made by the City of Arlington, the Texas Rangers, and The Cordish Companies. The Arlington Entertainment District is the first of its kind in America. As far as sports-anchored developments go, it’s one of the largest, and as far as Texas goes, it will be one of the most exciting places to find yourself. Featuring great Texas sports, world-class dining, and entertainment, this hospitality district is home to the best-in-class facilities, including a 5K-capacity outdoor event pavilion called Arlington Backyard.

In addition, a 302-room luxury Live! by Loews – Arlington, TX hotel, including a 35K-square-foot Grand Event Center will be opened in 2019. Also recognized as the first of its kind in the U.S., this flagship Live! by Loews hotel will offer 14 floors of accommodations together with top-of-the-line meeting and event facilities.

Shared on the City of Arlington, TX YouTube channel, this video gives you a peek at the activities leading up to these dates, gearing up for the grand opening festivities in August. Arlington and Texas Live! will host live entertainment on the Arlington Backyard stage, including a weekend-long entertainment lineup of prominent acts. There will also be activities and events taking place which the whole family can enjoy, including a Texas Rangers away-game watch party, a musical artist meet-and-greet, plus “…arts and crafts, moonwalks, face painters, jugglers, puppets, sports games, giveaways, and more!” For more information on the schedule of events designed for the whole community, visit the Texas Live! website or follow it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
