Presented by Blue Moon Brewing Company, it’s the largest art festival in the entire state of Texas, and it takes place just a short drive away in beautiful downtown Fort Worth. The MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival is recognized—annually amongst the 10 best art festivals in the nation, and it’s massive!

Nearly every major art form is represented at the festival. Browse world-class creations from the 215 juried and hand-selected artists in mediums including ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, painting, sculpture, photography and more.

Tune in to headliners from a variety of music genres, from Southern rock to soulful jazz. Follow your inner foodie’s desires and experience fare from as close as Fort Worth or as far as Germany. Sample craft beer and wine from local brewers and sommeliers.

Or try your hand at creating your own artistic masterpiece at MAIN ST. Creates! a family-friendly art studio that allows kids of all ages to express themselves through activities such as ceramic-tile painting, jewelry designing and caricature drawing.
