24HourDallas Overview

24HourDallas began as an initiative of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association. The GDRA is the North Texas chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association.

The all-volunteer 24HourDallas debuted January 4, 2020 following nearly five years of urban growth conflicts affecting the nighttime economy in the City of Dallas.

On May 5, 2020, 24HourDallas incorporated as a stand-alone 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to fully embrace all of the opportunities and challenges of making a safe, vibrant and diverse nighttime culture for businesses, residents and guests in Dallas.

More than 100 volunteers and 50 businesses and organizations comprise the 24HourDallas team.
