Every year, DFWI and DFWII host events that capture the essence of Downtown. Explore our events below, and make sure to check out our Events Calendar for weekly happenings!
Mark your calendars for April 20 - 23, 2017 and prepare for Spring! What better way to celebrate one of the top Downtowns in the country than stretching your legs along a Magnificent Mile of Art, Music and Food. Great restaurants, superb shopping with additional retail stores and of course, the #1 Arts Festival in Texas!
Save the date, Sunday, September 23, 2018 for DFWI's Annual Fundraising Event, the Main Table. It will feature delicious dinners from five of Downtown’s premier restaurants: Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, GRACE, Reata Restaurant, Ruth’s Chris Steak House and The Capital Grille.
The annual XTO Energy Parade of Lights is a fun and fabulous spectacle, featuring more than 100 floats and marching units gliding through the Downtown streets on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Santa makes his grand entrance into Fort Worth at the end of the Parade of Lights on a beautifully decorated float, then poses for pictures with the family at the beautiful Sundance Square Christmas Tree.
The Downtown Fort Worth Trailblazer Awards celebrate outstanding leadership, achievement, and contributions to Downtown.
