Fort Worth fest aims to be FAM-tastic

April 12, 2017 by  

Residents in Fort Worth and the surrounding metroplex are getting ready for the Second Annual F.A.M. Fest. The event features live music, entertainment, and shopping in one family-friendly package.

Abbreviating Family, Art, and Music, the F.A.M. is meant to bring together notable bands and musicians, contemporary artists and crafters, food vendors, and nonprofit groups into one large, block-party style event. Children and pets are welcome, adding to the low-key, local vibe the festival is aiming for.

Two stages are being set up for music, which includes bands such as Black Taffy, Alsace Carcione, and Francine Thirteen. Special guests have been chosen to headline the show, but they are as yet unannounced.

Additionally, there will be crafters there such as Voor and Shiny Penny Workshop offering locally crafted art, custom drinkware, clothing, and crafts, and other items. Food vendors will also be on site, including Magic Smoke and Curry Hut.

Finally, local nonprofit groups are encouraged to sign up and attend. The booths at the fest can provide a platform to educate the public about the services and causes in the area with informational brochures and videos. Signups for vendors and nonprofits are still being accepted.

F.A.M. Fest will be held on April 22 and 23, starting at noon each day at Shipping and Receiving, located at 201 S. Calhoun St. Admission is free to the public. Anyone interested in more information should visit the website.
