New Year, New Adventures: Fun Things to Do in January

Fun Things To Do
January 2, 2019 / By / Post a Comment

Let’s think about New Year’s resolutions for a second. There are so many possibilities for resolutions, ranging from trying to not eat as much junk food and spending less time sitting on the couch, to quitting a bad habit or trying something new. Out of all the resolutions and goals, however, there’s one thing you should definitely try to do more of – adventure around Denton County!


DCTA can get you to events all around the area, and the simplicity of our service along with the vast array of things to do will definitely have you keeping this New Year’s resolution all year long! Take a look at some events that DCTA can get you to for you to start your year out right:


VAST Exhibition: Quilt as Art in Denton

Some quilts are for cozying up in in the cold weather, but others aren’t for wrapping yourself in at all – they’re for looking at! Retired teacher and master quilter Barbara McCraw is a “master quilter” who has created beautiful quilts showcasing inspirational people and instances in history, and now they are on display for all to see! You can see this exhibition every Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (until February 15) at 400 E. Hickory Street for FREE by riding Denton Connect Route 7. For more information, visit


Denton Bridal Show

Struggling to find your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue? The Denton Bridal Show has you covered!

Get your game face on Friday, January 18, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and get ready to win! Tickets are only $35 per couple, and you can take your date night savings even further by using the Highland Village Lyft discount!

Denton Black Film Festival

Denton is known for great festivals and its fun atmosphere, and one event really encompasses how unique the city is – the Denton Black Film Festival! This diverse and unique festival is back again to address under-representation in the media, film and more through showcasing stories that represent the Black community.  From January 23 through 27 at various times on the Denton Square, you can watch movies, listen in on panels, dance to music and more for tickets as low as $14 (tickets range from $14 to $189)!
