These are the 7 best things to do in Fort Worth this weekend

These are the 7 best things to do in Fort Worth this weekend

With the Fourth of July falling on a Thursday this year, the number of new non-Independence Day events in Fort Worth has dwindled considerably. In addition to catching up on theater you may have missed or celebrating the holiday, you can choose from a chamber music festival, screenings of a new film, a comedian, and two concerts.

Below are the best ways to spend your free time this weekend. Want more options? Luckily for you, we have a much longer list of the city’s best events.

Wednesday July 3rd

Mimir Chamber Music Festival
The Mimir Chamber Music Festival presents a series of concerts by professional musicians and emerging artists. Since its inception in 1998, Mimir has presented more than 200 concerts by Mimir artists and has mentored approximately 500 young emerging artists worldwide. All performances, which run through July 12, will be at PepsiCo Recital Hall on the TCU campus, except the July 7 concert, which will be held in the Renzo Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum.

Circle Theatre’sOne hundred daysa folk-punk musical making its regional premiere will be performed three more times through Saturday. And Hip Pocket Theatre’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be shown three more times through Sunday.

Jason Boland and the Stragglers in concert
Members of the Red Dirt/Texas Country genre, Jason Boland & The Stragglers are actually a product of Oklahoma, starting out when Boland and drummer Brad Rice met at Oklahoma State University. But they’ve since proven their Texas bona fides, with one of their albums titled Live and lit at Billy Bob’s TexasThey have released 10 albums in their career, the most recent of which TThe light saw me in 2021. They play at Billy Bob’s Texas.

Saturday July 6th

Little Texas in concert
The ’90s were the height of country music for Little Texas, who became so popular that they released a greatest hits album after only three albums. You can’t say it was without reason, as only one of their first 13 singles failed to crack the top 20 on the country charts, with seven of those reaching the top five, including the perennial “God Blessed Texas.” The group, which has not released a new album since Young for a long time will play at Billy Bob’s Texas in 2015.
