Celebrating the Creative Community in Denton, Texas.

About Us


The Denton Arts & Music Awards was founded in 2017 alongside the one-year anniversary of The Dentonite. Staff and contributors couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our local artists than to throw an annual awards show.

 After our second event in 2018, we decided to file for non-profit status so we can use this event to raise money for important organizations throughout the North Texas community.

 In 2019 we are choosing to benefit the North Texas Dream Team. Founded in 2010, The North Texas Dream Team is a community-led nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the dreams and goals of students; to educate and bring awareness to everyone, regardless of color, when it comes to issues in our communities.
