Fort Worth’s Cultural District is home to many acclaimed museums and cherished community organizations. These institutions are happy to announce the tenth annual Day in the District, a celebration of the rich and diverse cultural organizations in Fort Worth, with exciting, entertaining, and interactive programming and performances.


The museums will offer FREE admission, and Fort Worth performing arts organizations, coordinated by the Arts Council, will offer FREE performances in and around the district (schedule to be announced). Outdoor performances and events entice visitors out among the landscaped grounds. Visitors can park their cars and enjoy events and venues all day, as the district is pedestrian friendly with a free bus circulator.
