Art. Cuisine. Music. Entertainment. Family fun. They all intersect at downtown Fort Worth's largest and most popular annual event, the MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival. The crown jewel of Texas art events, MAIN ST. is ranked the #1 arts festival in Texas and the 6th largest arts festival in the U.S. according to The Harris List and the Art Fair SourceBook respectively.
Year after year, Main Street is packed with fascinating sights and sounds as tens of thousands of fine artists, dancers, performance artists, musicians, exhibitors, food vendors and art lovers take part in the four-day celebration. More than 200 juried artists line the historic red bricks of Main St., where revelers can find everything from stunning oil paintings to cool kinetic sculptures and colorful jewelry.
You can also find a family-friendly arts and crafts area, a wine pavilion, booths featuring local restaurants and more than 300 live performances by top local, regional and national acts, all against the picturesque backdrop of turn-of-the-century buildings and modern glass skyscrapers. Best of all - the admission is free!
