Bedford Artsfest 2017

In collaboration with the Bedford Cultural Commission, the City of Bedford presents ArtsFest, a family friendly event to promote and celebrate the arts in Bedford. This festival will feature artists, musicians and performers who contribute to the vibrant heritage of the North Texas region.

Enjoy an assortment of food trucks, craft beers, wine, musical entertainers and art of all shapes and sizes at the historic Boys Ranch Park. In years past, the city has seen a tremendous outpouring of residents and guests supporting this endeavor and we hope to continue with the tradition.

In the heart of the city’s cultural district, the third annual Bedford ArtsFest will take place April 8th, 2017 at the Bedford Boys Ranch Park. Coinciding with the City of Bedford’s Easter Egg Celebration, families can enjoy the Easter festivities and continue over to the ArtsFest for free entertainment and activities. The Bedford ArtsFest is a single-day event that adds vibrancy to mid-cities by creating opportunities for people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to celebrate the arts of North Texas.

Artists of all varieties and skills will have an opportunity to display and sell artwork at ArtsFest. More information in tabs below.
