Enjoy samples of some of the world’s greatest spirits and cigars all within the backdrop of fantastic food, live music, and giveaways.
And, you can even make a day of meeting up with fellow connoisseurs and friends new and old over a great drink or quality cigar. Early bird tickets for this event start at $50, which includes discounted cigar pricing and complimentary spirit tasting.

Art Worth Festival
If you’re excited about getting in on something totally new in Fort Worth, the inaugural Art Worth Festival will be right up your alley. This first-of-its-kind fest will take place on Oct. 21 to Oct. 23 on the lawn of the Will Rogers Memorial Center, which is the heart of the city’s Cultural District and in clear view of six museums. If the location’s not enough to get you in the spirit of your town’s art scene, this juried event for fine craft and art will.
Enjoy breathtaking displays from a variety of local artists and cheer on your faves as they go for some of the festival’s biggest prizes. Or, you can simply grow your appreciation for local art as you enjoy the festival’s classical music offerings and enjoy treats from food and wine vendors. This event, which aims to open up the floor for art appreciation and criticism to all Fort Worth residents, is a great (and free) way to spend a day or two in a living museum right downtown.
Tarrant County Harambee Festival
If you’re looking to connect with your community and neighbors, check out the Tarrant County Harambee Festival. In Swahili, “Harambee” means “all pull together,” and that’s exactly what this two-day festival is all about. Created by and intended for local community members, this is a great way to learn more about the place you live.
On the first Saturday of October, you and your family can experience food, music, and cultural awareness demonstrations right near the William M. McDonald YMCA in Fort Worth. The night before this free event, you can even check out the associated Annual Seafood, Chicken, and Blues Festival to complete your weekend.
