COVID-19 Update: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and CDC recommendations for preventing the virus spread, the 2020 MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.) has been postponed, with a tentative date to occur in September 2020. With the well-being of our community, guests, artists, vendors, entertainers, volunteers, and staff as a top priority, MAIN ST. organizers have made the difficult decision to reschedule this year’s event following ongoing discussions with our public health and safety partners. We appreciate your continued support during this time, urge you to follow the guidelines and protocols set forth by public health officials, and encourage you to stay updated on the 2020 MAIN ST. through our website and social media pages
Our week-long virtual festival will take place within a Facebook event on MAIN ST.’s Facebook page, as well as on MAIN ST.’s Twitter and Instagram profiles. Throughout Festival week, MAIN ST. will feature 200 of this year’s artists, share exclusive artwork images, behind-the-scenes studio tours, interactive art tutorials, Facebook Live takeovers from various entertainers, favorite restaurant recipes and more. Head over to our award-winning Artist Gallery to see all of our 2020 Artists!
A limited-edition, cloisonné lapel pin is now available for online purchase for $10 to support the festival. Pin-wearers will receive 10% off MAIN ST. merchandise during the postponed 2020 fall event, tentatively scheduled to take place in September, and proceeds of sales will help all festival programs.
We need your help more than ever! The 2020 Friends of the Festival program provides needed financial support for the festival, and gives supporters an opportunity to engage with decision-makers in a unique setting during the event. Featuring special programming, tastings and chef’s choices from The Capital Grille, this experience raises the bar with our VIP Experience!
Long a fixture in the Fort Worth arts scene, and associated with MAIN ST. in particular, Gregory Story begins his Modern Clay Farewell Tour with a specially designed Commemorative Poster for MAIN ST. 2020. Story will retire his current body of work, including the much-loved WallBalls, this year in order to start afresh in a new media.
For this poster Mr. Story created a series of unique and colorful ceramic tiles featuring the iconic Tarrant County Courthouse.
Designed by Pinkerton Design, and printed by Cockrell Enovation on Mohawk Options cover paper stock, courtesy of Olmsted Kirk Paper Company, the 20×28″ poster is now available online. Available signed or unsigned, it ships in a sturdy packing tube.
