The Fort Worth Music Festival, formerly known as Jazz by the Boulevard, will be held September 30 through October 1. This year the new name means more music genres and expansion to other local music venues. Join some of the best names in local, regional, and national music all weekend long, including smooth jazz saxophonist and songwriter, Kirk Whalum. In addition to two days of non-stop music featuring 20 acts on two stages, the festival will feature cooking classes by area chefs, artwork by area artists, and gear by local vendors. The Fort Worth Music Festival is presented by the Historic Camp Bowie Initiatives, a nonprofit group dedicated to revitalizing historic Camp Bowie Boulevard.
