ArtsGoggle is made possible by the generous contributions of an entire community. From large sponsorships to artist lounge snacks donations, ArtsGoggle relies on the entire community to pitch in to support the event. Learn more about the various different ways that you can help out below.


PUT YOUR COMPANY FRONT AND CENTER AT ARTSGOGGLE. Near Southside, Inc. is seeking community-centered partners for 2023 ArtsGoggle sponsorships. The event provides a unique opportunity for a company to promote its brand to tens of thousands of attendees while also supporting a tremendously popular community event that has become a treasured component of life in the Near Southside. Terms and benefits of sponsorship are listed in the following pages. Sponsorship contributions made to Near Southside Arts are deductible as charitable donations.



Trolley sponsors are underwriting one of the most important pieces of the ArtsGoggle plan. With more than 60,000 visitors coming to the Near Southside on ArtsGoggle day, the official ArtsGoggle Trolley is critical tool that serves thousands of riders throughout ArtsGoggle day. The trolley operates with approximately two 50 passenger charter buses circling from South Main Village to Magnolia Avenue stopping at approximately 5 trolley stops near free public parking lots and Trinity Metro transit connections in these two urban villages. Riders are invited to hop-on and hop-off the trolley free of charge throughout the day until one hour after the event. The official ArtsGoggle trolley sponsor will receive a advertising exposure, logo placement on printed materials and signs thought out the festival and social promotion.


Programming sponsors underwrite a unique piece of ArtsGoggle. From presenting interactive public art to supporting the volunteer team, programming sponsors are positioned as ArtsGoggle champions for the most photogenic, socially shared, and memorable aspects of the production. Your partnership has the potential to be instantly iconic, critically important, and highly visible. Options for this year’s ArtsGoggle programming sponsorships include:

ArtsGoggle has always been a team effort! One of the festival's most important features depends on your support - the artist and volunteer lounges. The lounges are an important retreat where artists can get away from the hubbub of the festival, use an indoor restroom, and enjoy a few snacks to keep their batteries charged for the big day. Volunteers use the lounges to check in, grab their event materials, and take breaks to refuel as needed. The lounges also support our event production team such as the Near Southside staff, Fort Worth Police Department, and MedStar experts who keep the event running safely for all.

Donations of all sizes are so helpful!
