    • Photos with Santa from 5 PM - 7 PM 

2023 Catrina Fest in Sundance Square

Lunchtime Music Series

The Lunchtime Music Series is BACK in Burnett Park this fall. Enjoy this free mid-week pick-me-up every Wednesday from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The series runs through November 8, 2023. Grab your lunch and meet us there!

Unwind and Unplug with Yoga and Zumba

This fall, Downtown Fort Worth invites you to prioritize your health and wellness with free yoga and ZUMBA classes in Burnett Park.

Every Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m., a licensed YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth instructor will lead a yoga class. Whether you're a seasoned yogi or stepping onto a mat for the first time, these classes are open to everyone. Remember to BYOM (Bring Your Own Mat) and invite a friend or two! Yoga in Burnett Park runs through October 31, 2023 (wear your favorite costume for our last class).

If dancing is more your style, join us for free ZUMBA classes every Thursday from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. in Burnett Park. A licensed Downtown YMCA instructor teaches these classes about letting loose, having fun, and getting your groove on. Grab your friends and join us through November 3, 2023.

Live Music in Sundance Square Plaza 

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings 

Wind down after dinner or get the party started with live music in Sundance Square Plaza every weekend! Follow @sundancesquaremusic on Instagram for upcoming line-up info. Learn more here.

Amenities That Enhance the Experience

Burnett Park has undergone enhancements to make your visit more enjoyable. The newly installed 6,000 sq. ft. deck invites you to enjoy the scenery with comfortable seating options, including new blue and white Adirondack chairs. Additionally, the fan-favorite Singing Trees continue to light up the sky and illuminate the nighttime experience of Burnett Park.

None of this would be possible without the support and sponsorship from Burnett Plaza and the Burnett Foundation. Whether you join us for Movie Nights, enjoy mid-week music, or find your zen through yoga and Zumba, Burnett Park's fall programming offers something for everyone.
