Amon CarterIn honor of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s 50th Anniversary, the entire Fort Worth community is invited to a fun-filled, FREE celebration called 50 Fest on Saturday, August 13 from 5:30–9 p.m. at the museum in the Fort Worth Cultural District. Outside on the plaza, guests will be treated to food, drinks and the toe-tapping music of two Austin-based bands. All ages are encouraged to join in and become a part of museum history.

The Marshall Ford Swing Band kicks off 50 Fest and American picnic fare including hot dogs, chips and dessert from Curly’s Frozen Custard, a Fort Worth favorite, will be offered to guests. In addition, there will be hula hoops and bubbles for more outdoor fun, along with photo booths where guests can pose for a souvenir of the celebration. Visitors will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite Amon Carter–themed confection designed by local pastry chefs.  Gallery hours will be extended to allow guest plenty of time to visit their favorite artworks.  For more information, Click Here.
