There is so much to DO Downtown, even through the dog days of Summer. Here are six ways to beat the heat of in the heart of the city. For our full event calendar, click here.

Grab a pop in Sundance Square Plaza

Nothing better than enjoying an ice-cold popsicle in the summer time! Enjoy a treat from Steel City Pops as you sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of Sundance Square Plaza at a bistro table under the umbrellas. You can find other chilled treats nearby at Schakolad Chocolate Factory, Nestle Toll House Café & Red Mango, Jamba Juice, and Paciugo Gelato.


Escape the Room

Does the heat of the summer just make you want to lock yourself indoors? Make a game out of it at the new Escape the Room in Downtown! Each room has its own theme and clues that will help you escape. Once you’re in, you’ve got 60 minutes to figure out how to get out! This test of wits and problem solving skills is the perfect activity for groups of friends and family to do together. Reserve a room here.


Visit the Central Library

The Fort Worth Central Library offers more than just books. From book clubs, family movie showings, genealogy workshops, and art exhibits, this library offers a large variety of free programs for everyone to enjoy. During the summer, their 3rd Thursday Jazz Series draws a crowd for this fun, live jazz music series. Learn more about their events and programs here.


Tour Acre Distillery

Acre Distillery not only serves delicious spirits, cocktails and bites, but also offers tours on their production floor! Join a tour and taste seven of their handcrafted spirits while learning more about their historic neighborhood – Hell’s Half Acre. Each guest will receive a complimentary Acre rocks glass and a 15% discount of any retail bottles purchased in house. Seating is limited, so sign up ahead of time here.


Catch a Movie

Grab a bag of buttery popcorn and watch the latest blockbuster at AMC Palace 9 in Sundance Square!  Enjoy the dim, cool theatre as you cozy up in one of their large power-recliners. Be sure to find your perfect seats ahead of time on the AMC app or website.
