Kids love arts and crafts, and MAIN ST. offers plenty of hands-on, arts and crafts activities in our own, outdoor art studio!

Main St. Creates!

Main ST. Creates! is open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to just after dusk, and until 7 p.m. on Sunday. “MAIN ST. Creates!” is easy to find – just head to the north end of Main between Weatherford Street and 1st Street, near the Tarrant County Courthouse. Look for the colorful overhead arch leading the way!
