Main Street Arts Festival Cancelled

Main Street Arts Festival Cancelled

We love our city, and we love our amazing annual festivals. 2020 has been a tough year for a lot of reasons, but one of those is watching our friends make tough decisions to postpone our favorite annual events. This just in from Downtown Fort Worth, Inc.

The board of directors of Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc. (DFWII), producers of the 2020 MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.), has canceled the 2020 edition of the MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival, originally scheduled to take place on April 16-19, then postponed to September. Cancellation is due to increasing Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns and governmental recommendations for restricting large gatherings in order to prevent community spread.

MAIN ST.’s relaunch will be scheduled with overriding consideration given to public health and safety.

“It’s with a heavy heart that we’ve come to the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival,” said Nina Petty, chairwoman of the Festivals and Events Committee for DFWII, and member of the DFWII board of directors. “The safety and well-being of our festivalgoers, artists, entertainers, vendors, volunteers and sponsors remain our top priority, and we appreciate everyone’s continued support during these uncertain times.

“It’s an extremely difficult time for artists across the country,” said Jay Downie, festival producer. “We encourage everyone to visit our online artist gallery, browse through this year’s incredible lineup, and continue to support your favorite MAIN ST. artists who have been severely impacted by this year’s nationwide festival cancellations.”

Museum of Science & History postpones Reopen

Museum of Science & History postpones Reopen

UPDATED July 7:

Given the spike in COVID-19 cases in the Metroplex during the last two weeks, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to delay the reopening of our Museum, originally planned for mid-July. 

We have been preparing for our reopening since the day the Museum closed its doors and have been working hard to continue to offer fun, safe experiences during these challenging times. However, as a responsible member of the community we need to respect the recommendation of healthcare professionals to eliminate unnecessary visitor contact.

We will continue to prepare for our eventual reopening and we will keep you informed. Although our doors remain closed, we will continue to offer fun, educational content for you and your family through the Discovery Lab Online video series and customized Online Field Trips. For the latest updates regarding our reopening timeline, please continue to visit our website at fwmuseum.org.

Thank you for continuing to support us throughout this time. We look forward to welcoming you back to experience the excitement of science and history as soon as we can.
