The Fourth of July celebration at Wriggly Tin marked the debut of the “East Dallas Concert Series,” featuring Cayuga All-Stars bringing their upbeat cumbia music to the family-friendly outdoor patio. Between sets, Supersonic Bass Party DJs kept the party going – delivering the perfect vibes for the holiday event.

Wriggly Tin’s outdoor patio (complete with a new outdoor stage) was a stellar viewing spot to see Fair Park’s annual fireworks display. The venue shutting off their lights at 9:45 PM for maximum enjoyment. The crowd stood in the dark watching the show, with phones out and cheering during the finale.

The event also served as an introduction to Dezi (Dezman Lehman), the new Entertainment Talent Buyer for Wriggly Tin, whose expertise promises to bring a fresh and dynamic vibe to the venue. With his deep knowledge of the DFW music scene, Dezi is set to infuse the venue with local talent through the weekly concert series.

Alongside these concerts, the venue will also feature themed dance parties, such as the upcoming “Diskoteca de Brujas,” and a “Bottomless Vinyl Brunch” every Sunday. This Fourth of July event was just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting and diverse lineup at Wriggly Tin.
