MAIN ST. FORT WORTH ARTS FESTIVAL CLOSING SUNDAY, APRIL 13

Due to strong winds and potential severe weather conditions

FORT WORTH, Texas (April 13, 2014) – Organizers of the 29th annual MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival made the decision to close the festival one day early on Sunday, April 13, after the National Weather Service issued a wind advisory in effect from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.. South winds of 25-30 miles per hour are expected with gusts in excess of 35 miles per hour.

“Due to updated projections of sustained high winds of 25-35 miles per hour throughout the day, and out of consideration for the safety of our guests, artists, volunteers, vendors and performers, we will be closing MAIN ST. today,” said Jay Downie, events director of Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., the producer of the MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival. “This is not a decision we take lightly; however, our number one priority is the safety of all who are involved. We hope everyone stays home and stays safe.”
