Fort Worth South

Events

Beginning with a Magnolia Street festival in 1998, FWSI has continued to partner with local businesses, volunteers, residents, musicians, and artists to sponsor exciting community events that draw thousands to the district. Over the years these events have become one of the most exciting and rewarding components of our organization’s work.  

FWSI present four signature community events: ArtsGoggle, Friday on the Green, Open Streets and Chili on the Green. In addition, the organization presents an annual banquet and monthly breakfasts and happy hours hosted by FWSI member businesses.

This section provides information on all of the FWSI events as well as others that attract thousands of visitors to the Near Southside each year.
