Celebrating 20 Years as the Near Southside's Premier Arts Event
ArtsGoggle presented by Trinity Metro is Fort Worth's premier festival of local arts. This free to the public, family-friendly event annually hosts more than 1,000 visual artists, 50 musical performances, artistic displays of every kind, food, drink, and fun for everyone. Unlike any event in Fort Worth, it exclusively focuses on highlighting the work of local artists, musicians, and performers of all mediums and experience levels. ArtsGoggle attracts a crowd of 60,000+ patrons that are as diverse as the Near Southside neighborhood where the event is hosted. Visitors are invited to park their cars and rediscover this revitalized urban neighborhood by foot or by bicycle, including Fort Worth Bike Sharing bikes.
ArtsGoggle started 20 years ago as the Near Southside's own indoor gallery night designed to showcase the district’s revitalization efforts underway via newly-established business hosting one-day open houses in partnership with local artists. The event remained almost exclusively indoors for the first decade before spilling out onto the street. Today, visitors are invited to stroll artist’s booths on Magnolia Avenue that stretch more than a mile in length and adjacent businesses, new and old, tout ArtsGoggle as their best day of sales each year.
ArtsGoggle prides itself in providing a casual, approachable and vibrant environment to appreciate art and learn about the talents within our own community. For almost two decades, this non-juried art festival has been the launch pad for many artists showing their work for the first time. ArtsGoggle provides a supportive setting for both aspiring and professional artists with new collections to display, sell and seek comment on their artwork.
Accompanying the visual artists, the entertainment at ArtsGoggle heavily features local musicians and offers performances from a variety of genres. In addition, the event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs.

Outdoors: Centered along Magnolia Avenue from 8th Avenue to S. Main Street, 21 blocks, one mile stretch. A feast of art!
Indoors: At participating Near Southside venues such as restaurants, bars, offices, and retailers who are hosting artists, live music, and other entertainment in celebration of ArtsGoggle!
