Mayfest in Fort Worth May 4 – 7, 2017


Mayfest is located in Trinity Park (2401 University Drive, 76107) in the heart of Fort Worth, just east of University Drive and north of I-30.

Come help us celebrate Mayfest’s 45th Anniversary as a way to thank the community for all their support over the past 45 years, Mayfest will have FREE ADMISSION on Thursday, May 4, 2017 for ALL Patrons. That’s right – everyone will be able to enjoy the fun and excitment of Mayfest without paying an entrance fee.

And we won’t stop there! On Friday, May 5th, the first 45 people in line will receive a “Party Pass” that will allow them free entrance into the festival for the rest of the weekend and a FREE Mayfest Koozie! Our hope is every citizen will be able to join us this year as we celebrate all the magic of Mayfest!

Mayfest May 4th, May 5th, May 6th, May 7th 2017
Mayfest has roughly 40 bands performing on three stages over 4 days and more than 40 performing groups on another three stages. We have bounce houses, a sand pile, face painting, retriever dogs performing their mad skills, and stilt-walkers. The “Best of the Fest” Food Vendor Contest is judged on Thursday afternoon (we even create a food-crawl map for you so you can sample the entries yourself!), and a Student Art Contest and awards ceremony take place on Sunday at the Art Stage. We have rock-climbing, fishing, a zip-line, and a human maze. Let the kids play on the Trinity Park playground while you enjoy an ice-cold beverage and listen to the music on the Main Stage. Catch some great breezes off the Trinity River as you get a work-out in the paddleboat. Stop by the Frank Kent and Fox 4 areas – they always have give-aways! Stroll through the Art and Gift Market where more than 60 vendors from around the nation bring in everything from clothing and furniture to home goods and art.
