Fort Worth is a city with a rich, diverse musical history and a thriving arts community. The Fort Worth African American Roots Music Festival was created to deepen the history and broaden the local arts scene by sowing the seeds of a new music community, and placing Fort Worth in the vanguard bringing awareness to an often forgotten piece of America's musical history.
Come join us at Arts Fifth Avenue in the Fairmount National Historic District for a day of performances, workshops, community jams and dancing with award-winning artists from around the country representing the African American past, present, and future of old time, jug band, early blues, jazz, and beyond.
