Main Street Festival set for April

A

The Main Street Arts Festival returns to Downtown Fort Worth for its 29th year on April 10-13, 2014. Presented by Coors Distributing Company of Fort Worth and produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives Inc., the four-day Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival spreads along more than 27 blocks from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center, showcasing 213 hand-selected juried artists.


Main Street will also feature 120 music performances throughout the weekend, including performances from the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Opera, five-time Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist Robert Cray, country / rock vocal group The Mavericks, nine-time Grammy Award-winning Latin jazz pianist Eddie Palmieri, Austin-based eclectic singer / songwriter Bob Schneider and the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medal winner Vadym Kholodenko,


“The Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival has become the city’s most beloved annual event, and, even more importantly, continues to fulfill its original purpose of changing perspectives and enhancing the quality of life of Downtown Fort Worth,” said Marilyn Ackmann, chairman of the Festivals and Events Committee for Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives Inc. “The Festival has also been a major catalyst for our city’s cultural growth by welcoming and bringing together people from all sides of life, from local cowboys, foodies and music lovers to artistic mavens, gallery owners and global art dealers and collectors. It is because of these reasons that Main Street has risen to be one of the top-rated, fine arts festivals in the country and received worldwide acclaim and recognition.”
This year will mark the debut of the new Sundance Square Plaza as part of the festival and will serve as the location for the renewed Main Street “Artist’s Square,” as well as the new Performing Arts Stage, one of three entertainment stages throughout the festival.
