The heart and soul of the festival has and will always be the world-class art on display. Millions of dollars worth of art is expected to be sold across 15 mediums, including ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, printmaking, digital, fiber, leather, painting, sculpture, drawing/pastels, glass, metalwork, photography, and wood.
Also billed as Fort Worth’s largest, free music festival, Main St. features with more than 100 local, regional and national musicians performing on three stages throughout its four days. The 2016 lineup features headliners Marcia Ball, Poncho Sanchez, Maceo Parker, and Squonk Opera, along with local favorites The Killdares, Luke Wade, and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, among many others.
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 in Downtown Fort Worth.
