When well-known Dallasite Trammell S. Crow founded Earth Day Dallas in 2011, it was held in the Arts District downtown in April and drew 265 exhibitors and 48,000 visitors in the first year. The following year, the event grew, attracting roughly 58,000 people at its new larger location at Fair Park, where the event will be held again in 2013 on April 20 and 21 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
