Arts and Culture Weekend in Fort Worth
Fort Worth is an ideal spot any time of year, particularly for an arts and culture weekend; if the weather is bad, you can just pop into a museum or two and wait it out. The city is popular with conventions and group travel year-round, so it is recommended to book hotel rooms (and tables at noted restaurants) in advance. Particularly busy times include the Southwestern Exposition (usually late-January to early-February), when over one million visitors come in for three weeks of livestock markets, rodeo shows, and competitions.
Ranked among the top five arts festivals in the country, the free Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival offers four days of performances, craft shows, concerts, shopping, and food stalls. The National Day of the Cowboy, typically held in July, honors cowboys and cowgirls past with a day of riding demos, gun fighting shows and lively contests such as Best Mustache and Best Seed-Spitting.
