We encourage you to explore the Denton community during your UNT Transfer Showcase weekend! The City of Denton is the quintessential small Texas town with a big heart and a love for all things local. A favorite spot among Dentonites is the Denton County Courthouse lawn, where locals and visitors alike stop to picnic, people watch, and play music. Downtown, more commonly known as “The Square,” has many shops and restaurants to explore. Denton is also known for its live music scene, from dozens of open mic dives to the Denton Arts & Jazz Festival and Oaktopia.
