What if I want to bring my badass kids?

Kids love Fortress and Fortress loves kids. Many have fested with us over the last couple of years and we strive to create environment that families can enjoy together. Children 10 and under are admitted to the festival for free and we are working on creating spaces within the festival grounds customized for kids and families. That said, not all aspects of the festival are for little ones and we encourage parents and guardians to research the acts playing at any given time to ensure their flock do not hear things they are not supposed to or hear things at sound levels they are not supposed to (aka please bring ear protection for small children). If you have any other questions about how to best experience the festival with children, please email us at info@fortressfestival.com.

I don't want to drive. What about public transportation from D/FW?

There will be a wide variety of routes for public transportation to and from festival grounds from all over Fort Worth and D/FW.

There are many options for taking public transportation within Fort Worth. Trinity Metro’s The Dash, an all new electric bus, and bus route 2 both travel between downtown Fort Worth and the Cultural District every 15 minutes 7 days a week. RIDETRINITYMETRO.org. You may also take advantage of the awesome bike share program Fort Worth offers or use a rideshare app such as Lyft. As we get closer to the event we will provide more detailed instructions on how to best take advantage of these awesome alternatives for getting there.
