Description

The magic of Main Street Fest is back, and better than ever! Bring the whole family to historic Grapevine, Texas, to enjoy three fun-filled days of breathtaking outdoor shows and performances, a craft brew garden and wine pavilion, live music, carnival rides and a street fair with flair. The 38th Annual Main Street Fest: A Craft Brew Experience, presented by Bank of the West, is “Where Fun Comes to Play” May 20–22 along Historic Main Street, coinciding with American Craft Beer Week.

Family-Friendly Events and Activities

Main Street Fest caters to family-friendly fun! This year’s festival will offer plenty of parent- and kid-friendly activities, with tons of fun to discover along the Carnival midway, a Kidz Zone and all along Historic Main Street. Folks can take a spin on the Ferris wheel, catch thrills on the many carnival rides and try their luck along the midway games. After working up an appetite, they can top off their winnings with ice-cold drinks and classic festival bites like corn dogs, turkey legs, nachos, funnel cakes, snow cones and popcorn.

In a new location, children can enjoy the Kidz Zone offering arts and crafts provided by 121 Community Church (come make a newspaper hat!) as well as interactive experiences with LEGOLAND Discovery Center and the Balloon Guy. Festival goers can walk across the Grapevine Vintage Railroad train platform to European-style food hall Harvest Hall, and for $3 visit the observation level of the Tower at Grapevine Main Station, located at 815 S. Main St., for a 150-foot-high bird’s eye view of festival grounds from the south end of Historic Main Street.

Nonstop Live Entertainment

New this year, Main Street Fest attendees will encounter an exciting lineup of internationally renowned street performers throughout the festival grounds, from the sword-fighting high-wire act Pirates of the Columbian Caribbean to U.K. illusionist magician Billy Kidd, circus entertainer Cate Great, Guinness World Record-holder Pogo Fred, stunt comedian Wacky Chad, the acrobatic Red Trousers Show and Big Bee the Transforming Robot Car.

Additionally, a variety of musical acts will have all members of the family rockin’ and rollin’ from the Liberty Park Plaza Music Stage, sponsored by Gaylord Texan Resort, and Town Square Gazebo Stage, sponsored by Flyhomes. Musical guests include rock bands Mr. Inez and the Zack King Band, country crooners Mojo Brothers, Texas singer-songwriter Jon Christopher Davis, and Americana / blues singer Kerri Lick.

The Craft Brew Experience

In the Craft Brew Garden, attendees can discover the full Craft Brew Experience, sponsored by Gaylord Texan, featuring over 75 craft brews from 30 breweries across 15 states, including Grapevine’s very own Hop & Sting Brewing Co. This year’s experience will have something on tap for everyone—including a number of brews you won’t find anywhere else in Texas—as well as familiar favorites.
