ArtsGoggle is Fort Worth’s premier festival of local arts. Attracting a crowd of 60,000+, ArtsGoggle offers live music, 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 started 17 years ago as the Near Southside’s own indoor gallery night and remained almost exclusively indoors for the first decade before spilling out onto the street. In 2018, in tribute to ArtsGoggle’s unique start, South Main Village businesses opened their doors in an all-day open house to show off the work of a wide array of local artists. A trolley was available to take visitors between Magnolia Avenue and South Main Village, stopping along the way at designated parking areas.

Continuing into 2019, the Gallery at Goggle feature expands the event to include more of the Near Southside and showcases fine art, music, experiential art, and unique programming inside each of the participating businesses ranging from breweries, bars, and bakeries to creative firms, historic preservation projects, and theaters.
