Fort Worth is a city that loves music, whether it’s a renowned symphony orchestra or the jingle of western spurs and bellowing cattle, music strikes a special chord in the City of Cowboys and Culture. With the live music scene on the rise, it's no surprise that Fort Worth hosts the Annual Fort Worth Music Festival, (formerly Jazz by the Boulevard) a two-day music, art and culinary event in the Fort Worth Cultural District off Camp Bowie Blvd.
