Main Street Arts Festival: #3 nationwide.

"JUST ANNOUNCED: The prestigious Art Fair SourceBook has just released its 2008 national rankings, and MAIN ST. has come in at #3 in Fine Art and #6 in Fine Craft! The rankings are based on several factors, the most significant being the sales revenues of our participating artists. Over 1000 festivals are reviewed prior to establishing the rankings.
Thank you, Fort Worth!
"

The above quote is from the Main Street Arts Festival website.

If you haven't been. Go. If for no other reason than to view the exhibits, but, the food's not bad either. It is, as they say, Fort Worth's most honored event and has been going now for 24 years.

The entertainment is good, too. That's an understatement. Main St offers many different kinds of music and performance groups from Ballet Folklorico to Mass Ensemble. Country, blues, jazz, funk, pop, etc. This has become a serious citywide festival.

So between Central Market and Main St. you have a pretty good weekend shaping up.

Main Street Arts Festival. April 16-19.

Going *by myself* this year so I can linger as long as I like at some artists' booths and skip right past the "you've got to be kidding" ones, without having to consider the needs of traveling companions.

Enjoy Lynn -- it is a great event for the casual browsing.

I'm hoping to round up some friends for the excursion; I love every little artsy festival-y type thing we do in Fort Worth, and Main Street's is definitely the best.
