This year, the Historic West End District is happy to welcome the Mary Kay Seminar back to Dallas!
Since 1974, the Mary Kay Seminar has brought thousands of attendees to downtown Dallas, and this year’s event is no different. Happening now through August 6, 2016, at the Kay Bailey Convention Center, the 42nd Annual Mary Kay Seminar is the time that Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants gather from all over to bask in their accomplishments from the year and kick off new goals.
Each year, the businesses around the West End and surrounding downtown neighborhoods take pride in welcoming Mary Kay patrons.
Located only a short three-minute drive from the convention center or a quick ride on the DART’s blue line, the West End is the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of Downtown Dallas. Whether you are a Dallas resident or are a first time visitor to North Texas, the West End has you covered on places to dine and play in Downtown Dallas.

“You’re in business for yourself but not by yourself.”
Those are the sentiments of Mary Kay Ash, the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics.
Founded in 1963, Mary Kay has always been a company that has empowered entrepreneurship, leadership education, and recognition amongst women. As a part of the Mary Kay team, women have the opportunity to work with a company that has heart, flexibility, and exponential growth.
The theme for the 2016 Mary Kay Seminar is Discover What You Love. And with over 50 years of success as a company and tens of thousands here in Dallas to support and encourage each other, it is clear that one of those loves is Mary Kay!
What to Do in The West End During the 2016 Mary Kay Seminar
If you are in town for this year’s events, the West End Historic District located in downtown Dallas is jam-packed with many activities to do during your downtime. Visit the Sixth Floor Museum to take in a little history during your stay in Dallas. The Sixth Floor Museum chronicles the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as well as the aftermath and impression it left on the country.
Another great place to visit is the Old Red Museum which exhibits the story of Dallas as well as its history and culture.
If you’re in for something a little different, go witness the exotic birds, mammals, and fish at the Dallas World Aquarium. With exhibits from places like South Africa, Borneo, and Mundo Maya, it is a must see attraction.
