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 of September 3-6, 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

Volunteer Now! We are looking for 1,000, Downtown-loving folks to help us serve our guests. We also have fundraising opportunities for groups. Check out all of the opportunities hereThe Artists’ Gallery is now live! Check it out and you can contact all of our artists now, individually, to purchase works in support or check out commissions. Most have indicated they will be joining us for the 35th edition on Labor Day Weekend, but we will update the gallery as we move through this difficult time. We will also be working on our Music lineup, to try and maintain as much of our initially announced schedule as possible. More to come on this in the weeks ahead. Stay safe!


The 2020 Friends of the Festival program is a great way to engage with our supporters and decision-makers in a unique setting overlooking the UTA Main Stage. Featuring special programming, tastings and chef’s choices from The Capital Grille, this experience raises the bar for your weekend Downtown!



This year’s selection of visual artists breaks new ground and features over sixty artists from Texas and the Metroplex. Be sure to visit the Emerging Artists, presented by Frost, on 3rd Street between Houston and Main Streets, and the incredible 2019 Award Winners.
