The Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival claims to be “The Art and Soul of Texas for 30 years.” This year’s festival is loaded with art and music for people to experience.
The festival will stretch one mile down Main Street, where different artists can display their representations of color, texture and shape. According to the festival guide, this year’s festival will host 215 local, regional, national and international artists throughout the weekend.
Nearly 1,400 artists applied to be in this year’s festival. Patrons will even be able to speak to artists about purchasing their works or even commissioning a personal work.
In addition to the art showcases, attendees will also get to experience musical performances in Sundance Square.
This year’s musical lineup includes acts such as The Georgia Satellites, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Tito Puente, Jr., the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and Fort Worth’s own Green River Ordinance.
The culinary arts will also play a big role in the festival. A new North Food Court will offer a variety of food options, picnic-style seating and street entertainment. A total of 24 different local restaurants will be providing cuisine for the festival.
Last year’s festival was negatively impacted by inclement weather, but forecasts for this year’s festival show that the skies should be clear for a beautiful weekend of art, food and music.
The Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival is free and begins Thursday.
