Farmers Branch Vintage Base Ball Festival

  • Bring your little leaguer or budding Rangers fan out to a festival celebrating base ball as it was first invented in the 1860s. Real teams from across Texas and the surrounding states will play according to historic rules throughout the day. Historic spectators and ballists will be available to answer questions and take photos. Cheer “Huzzah” for your favorite team as the players participate without gloves and according to rules from the Civil War Era. Then swing by the Farmers Branch Market for their grand season opening, too, complete with baseball themed activities and concessions. Concessions will be available. It’s recommended that guests bring lawn chairs or blankets.
