Festival Map

Attendance is FREE (Please - No Pets!)

As always, it is FREE to attend the MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival, but we ask you to please leave your pets at home. Browse art, listen to music and enjoy a variety of street performances at no charge. Certain activities (such as MAIN ST. Creates!) and food and beverages do require you purchase coupons from our conveniently located coupon booths.

Thursday through Saturday artists close at 8:00PM, and Sunday artists close at 6:00PM, so come early!


Free Water Stations

Leave your cooler of bottled waters at home. To help support and raise awareness for water conservation, the TRWD is sponsoring Free Water Stations around the festival. Simply bring your own water bottles and fill them up, or buy a MAIN ST. water bottle at the festival for 5 coupons – it makes a great souvenir and you can refill it throughout the Festival.

Cycle to the Fest!

Ride Your Bike, Park for Free.

We love bike riders and as a way of saying thanks, you can park your ride for free at our Bike Corral centrally located at 7th and Houston Streets. Open Thursday and Friday of the festival from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and on Saturday from 10:00am to 8:00pm, and Sunday from 10:00am to 7:00pm, the corral is staffed by the outstanding bicyclists from the Fort Worth Bicycle Association and Bicycle’s Inc. Stores.

Fort Worth B-cycle - 14 Stations near the Festival Zone!

Avoid the hassle of parking and ride B-cycle to MAIN ST.!  There are 14 bike-sharing stations conveniently located within walking distance of the festival.  There’s no better time to try out Fort Worth B-cycle, the first bike sharing system in North Texas. You can also ride bike share from the T&P or Intermodal Transportation Center straight to the heart of Main Street.

Use promo code 76102 at any station to receive half-price, $4 access to the system each day of the festival.

Check Parking and Street Closures

Nothing can be more frustrating than finding your normal route through downtown is closed off or detoured. Before you make your way down to the festival, please check the latest parking information and list of street closures

Dog Safety! - Please, No Pets!

Unfortunately, MAIN ST. is not pet friendly.  Pets are often intimidated by crowds and can react unpredictably.  For the comfort and safety of all of our patrons, people with pets will be asked to leave the event area, which is enforced through city ordinance.  All service animals are welcome.
