Amon Carter Museum of American Art
3501 Camp Bowie Blvd, Fort Worth, Texas 76107
Party on the Porch returns to the Amon Carter with more sound, more food, and more Fort Worth! You’re invited to a night of American art, live music, and local food, all happening on our front porch with the best view of the city!
This FREE event features live music by hometown artists, kicking off at 6:30 p.m. with the self-styled “AmeriTonk” sound of the soulful country artist Summer Dean Band. She is followed by the Matt Tedder Trio, whose music blends classic rock, blues, and modern folk. Headlining the event is Green River Ordinance with their sound of country, rock, pop, and folk.
Local food trucks, lighting effects on the building from Inside Image Design, screenprinted T-shirts by Pan Ector Industries, lawn games and a special area reserved for Amon Carter members are back by popular demand. Beer and wine will be available for purchase throughout the evening.
In addition to the food trucks, guests may choose to pre-order picnic dinners from Central Market by calling 817.377.9307; baskets will be picked up at the event at Central Market’s onsite store.
Gallery and museum store hours have been extended until 9 p.m. Docents will be on hand giving tours, and artmaking will also be offered.
