We're making lemonade out of lemons. There are so many wonderful things about Fort Worth that one can enjoy from the comfort of their own home. Here's a few ways to keep a bit of the city we all love with you. 

Listen to Local Artists

Many musicians are live streaming their performances on Facebook and linking to donation sites or Venmo. Follow Hear Fort Worth on Facebook and Instagram for daily updates on streamings and artist updates. Music makes the world go round, and right now, we need it more than ever.

In addition to live streaming, you can stream music on Amplify 817, the Fort Worth Library's new service supporting all local musicians. Local musician Rachel Gollay started a GoFundMe for artists and service workers affected by event cancellations and venue closures. The fund has now been extended by the United Way to support musicians and creatives by way of Hear Fort Worth and Film Fort Worth. Learn how to apply and contribute here

Binge Watch the Fort Worth Stories

We create a lot of our own content at Visit Fort Worth. Many of these videos focus on vibrant locals that are passionate about our city. From chefs and entrepreneurs to musicians and photographers, we've filmed it all. Binge watch the Fort Worth Stories Season 1 and 2 and Chef Stories on YouTube now. 

And, if you get hungry or homesick watching these, consider supporting your local shops and restaurants (if you're able) by purchasing a gift card, ordering food to go or simply sharing the Fort Worth love on social. 

Make a Local Recipe 

So you've stocked up on the essentials. Now what? Use this time to elevate your cooking skills with the help of our EatFW video series. Local restaurants share step-by-step how to make favorite dishes and drinks. If the dish doesn't turn out in the end, call up the pros for an order to-go. You can find a current list of restaurants offering curbside, delivery and to-go options here

Watch Fort Worth Films 

Are you a movie junkie with nothing but time on your (well-washed) hands? Get cozy on the couch with your favorite movie snack and binge watch some of the latest movies filmed in the city courtesy of Film Fort Worth.
