Denton, TX – The city of Denton is gearing up for the return of the Thin Line Fest, a popular arts festival celebrating film, music, and photography. Scheduled to take place from April 24 to 28, the festival will prompt several traffic adjustments to accommodate the influx of visitors and ensure safety.

As part of the preparations, significant road closures will be implemented on Saturday, April 27, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The affected areas include W. Hickory Street and W. Oak Street, both of which will be closed between N. Elm Street and N. Locust Street. To manage the flow of traffic, detour routes will be established along W. Pecan Street, Mulberry Street, N. Elm Street, and N. Locust Street. Electronic signage will guide drivers along these alternative paths.

Residents and visitors should be aware that all street closures and times are subject to modification depending on conditions. The city advises adherence to parking restrictions and encourages the use of public parking locations or ride-sharing services.

Businesses within the festival area will remain open as usual, but due to increased pedestrian traffic, some delays for motorists are expected. Those planning to drive near the festival area might consider alternative routes.

Celebrating its return as the state’s longest-running film festival since 2007, Thin Line Fest offers a unique combination of documentary films, music performances, and photography exhibits. The event is free to those who have registered, promoting a vibrant celebration of the arts.

The city of Denton appreciates the cooperation of the community and visitors in ensuring the success of this cultural event.
