The largest arts festival in Texas is returning to downtown Fort Worth for its 30th year April 9-12. The four-day Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival spans 25 blocks — from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center — while showcasing 220 hand-selected juried artists.

Also billed as Fort Worth’s largest, free music festival, Main Street features more than 100 performances throughout the weekend, including local and national acts and musicians, performance artists, dancers and street performers.

Culinary options from local restaurants, beer and wine tastings, family-friendly arts and crafts activities and more complete the scene, providing four days of excitement on the historic red bricks of Main Street and throughout Sundance Square Plaza.

Art enthusiasts can choose from a variety of creative and original works of art from 15-plus mediums, such as sculpture, painting, digital, fiber, printmaking, mixed media, ceramics, photography, wood, glass, jewelry and metalwork.

Main Street is a juried art fair, which means that artists must submit their work to a panel of national and local judges before being selected to exhibit. Of the 1,345 applications received, 220 artists were selected to exhibit at the 2015 festival.
