About
In 1976 Huffhines Art Trails was created to provide local artists and craftsmen a venue to promote and sell their work. Overthe years, the show has grown to become one of the best arts and crafts shows in North Texas. It is held on the third weekend in October at Huffhines Park in Richardson, Texas. 

Each October the paved trails of Huffhines Park come alive with vendors in our Marketplace offering a variety of local goods such as crafts, clothing, pottery, pre-packaged goodies, produce, jewelry and so much more. The whimsical array of local makers, curators, and creative talent on the trails is what makes the show truly a shopper’s delight! Patrons stroll trail after trail for those personal treasures and a unique shopping experience. 

The Marketplace is not the only thing the trails have to offer! Live performances from local talent add to the already festive environment on our Front Porch Stage and Backyard stage, as well as concessionaires offering your favorite delicious treats. Don’t forget to bring along your furry-sidekick to enjoy the Pawtoberfest activities such as dog-centric vendors, crafts and even costume contests. Guaranteed to be the best “pawty” in town! The trails also provide fall backdrops for photo opportunities and an incredible weekend of shopping, music and fun!
