Near Southside, Inc. partners with local businesses, residents, musicians and artists to sponsor exciting community events that draw thousands to the district. Each year Near Southside, Inc. presents four signature events and assists in the production and planning of many others. These events each offer a unique perspective of the talent, passion and investment within the district. ArtsGoggle showcases the various talents of our creative community and the generosity of our business community. Friday on the Green puts a spotlight on the live music the district has long been known for complimented by handcrafted offerings from our food trucks and market vendors. Open Streets embraces the benefits of the Near Southside's walkable urban environment, our complete streets initiatives and the importance of health and wellness efforts throughout Fort Worth. PARK(ing) Day is a global community effort to transform parking spaces into valuable public spaces. Most importantly, each event allows the Near Southside community the chance to engage with each other along our streets, sidewalks, and green spaces building an even stronger neighborhood tapestry.
***2020 Near Southside Community Events Update***
We've monitored conditions, taken guidance from public health officials, and consulted with our production partners for many months. With an abundance of caution for your safety, today we are announcing the cancellation of our remaining 2020 outdoor community events including ArtsGoggle, PARK(ing) Day, and the September and October Friday on the Green concerts. We're disappointed that we aren't sharing better news, but we remain hopeful that we will return for a dynamo 2021 season.
Despite the cancellations, the fall still offers exciting opportunities for our Near Southside community including NEW PROJECTS PLANNED in lieu of our regular programming with artists remaining front and center.
