The largest arts festival in Texas and one of the finest in the U.S. is returning to Downtown Fort Worth for its 30th year on April 9-12, 2015. Presented by Blue Moon Brewing Company, the four-day MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) spans more than 27 blocks from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center while showcasing 215 hand-selected juried artists.
The heart and soul of MAIN ST. has and will always be the world-class art on display. The Art Fair Sourcebook – one of the most respected reference works on the American art-show circuit – annually ranks MAIN ST. among the top 10 arts festivals in the U.S. In 2015, less than 14% of artists who applied were accepted into MAIN ST., with 1,345 applications received and 220 artists selected to exhibit. More than $4.6 million worth of art is expected to be sold across 15 mediums, including ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, printmaking, digital, fiber, leather, painting, sculpture, drawing/pastels, glass, metalwork, photography and wood.
Also billed as Fort Worth’s largest, free music festival, MAIN ST. features 120 distinct performances throughout the weekend, including local and national entertainment acts and musicians, performance artists, dancers and street performers. Culinary options from local restaurants, beer and wine tastings, family-friendly arts-and-crafts activities, and more complete the scene, providing four days of excitement on the historic red bricks of Main Street in Downtown Fort Worth.
