While streaming habits have steadily grown to a dismal peak, we can’t wait for in-person forms of entertainment to start again. Fort Worth has an incredible range of cultural offerings for all demographics, yet the majority of our favorites have kept their doors shut as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the meantime, we fervently wait and connect through alternative/online options.
The beloved MAIN ST. Arts Festival, generally held in April, was rescheduled for this September yet woefully was cancelled all together for 2020 (and 2021). Though the Fort Worth Parade of Lights intended and planned for (forgive the pun) a brighter future, they too have put the health and safety of Fort Worthians first and switched their efforts toward a TV-only version with no live audience.
Entertainment hubs like Palace 9 Movie Theater and Bass Performance Hall have closed their doors, planning for their safe re-openings. Fort Worth theaters including Amphibian Stage, Jubilee Theater, Stage West, and more have also kept a tight lock and key on their facilities but each have made strenuous efforts to reach out to their community online. Whether hosting screenings of previously recorded productions or creating Facebook-Live content, our drama houses are only a click away.
When sitting at home and feeling disconnected, don’t forget to tune into your community. Fort Worth is still calling.
