Congrads! and Welcome to Downtown Arlington, Class of 2020


Arlington has always been a “y’all come” kind of place, so when DFW-area educators needed large, open-air venues to accommodate social distancing best practices, our city became high school graduation headquarters!

Over 50 area high schools are holding ceremonies in Globe Life Field, AT&T Stadium, and the Levitt Pavilion from late May through the end of June.

In partnership with the Texas Rangers, AISD and the Levitt Pavilion, Downtown Arlington is reaching across North Texas to the Class of 2020, inviting them to celebrate here before and after their ceremonies.

Grads and their families can enjoy our great local cuisine, sunny patios, and unique shopping, along with Congrads! specials tailored just for them.

We’re also providing information about murals and other public art installations throughout Downtown, which provide colorful backdrops for cap and gown selfies.

Because so many of our restaurants, shops and pubs are homegrown and locally-owned, we understand the importance of providing not only a fun but safe environment for our guests. That’s because when you’re in Downtown Arlington, you’re part of our family! Our business community therefore proudly abides by state and federal COVID-19 protocols as well as industry best practices.

Visit our Congrads! website for a listing of participating restaurants and shops, map, and directions to our public art installations.
