Dino Mania Roars Into Grand Prairie!

Calling all dino lovers and adventure seekers! Get ready for a prehistoric experience like no other as the Ext-ROAR-dinary Dino Fest stomps into Grand Prairie. The festivities run Friday, March 15 from 10am-6pm, Saturday the 16th from 10am-6pm, and Sunday the 17th from 11am-5pm. Entry is completely FREE for all ages, so round up your tiny rexes and dino pals for this can’t-miss event!

At the center of the festivities are the jaw-dropping, life-sized animatronic dinosaurs provided by The Dinosaur Company. You’ll be able to get up close and personal with the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex, the plant-munching Brachiosaurus, the spiky Stegosaurus, and more incredible recreations of these prehistoric giants.

But that’s just the start of the dino delights! Throughout the weekend, you can:

  • Hear fascinating dino tales at the scheduled storytimes
  • Learn mind-blowing facts on the fun Dino Trail
  • Get crafty with dino mask making and other dino-themed arts & crafts
  • Dig for fossils and play dino games like Tricera-toss
  • Explore dino exhibits and much more!

Also, don’t forget to dine with the dinosaurs at The Finch waterfront restaurant, where they’ll be serving up a roaringly good Dino Nugget Kids Meal, complete with a side of crispy French fries. Let your little paleontologists fuel up on this prehistoric feast before venturing out to explore the animatronic dinosaurs and activities. With its scenic waterfront views, The Finch provides the perfect prehistoric pit stop during your Dino Fest adventures. (There is a cost associated with The Finch’s Dino Nugget Kids Meal.)

Presented by the Grand Prairie Libraries in partnership with EpicCentral, this three-day dino extravaganza is an event you will want to attend! Head to the Epic Central grounds at 2961 Hwy 161 in Grand Prairie!
