Open Streets

We had the most fun with our Fort Worth community at Near Southside’s Open Streets!

Open Streets is a national movement with more than 90 documented initiatives in North America. Open streets events are increasingly common in cities seeking innovative ways to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals by temporarily closing streets to automobile traffic, so that people may use them for walking, bicycling, and socializing. Near Southside Open Streets closes Magnolia Avenue and other adjacent streets to traffic and opens them up to cyclists, food trucks, dog-walkers, skateboarders, local business and the people that call Fort Worth home. Open Streets was presented by Near Southside, Inc. and the City of Fort Worth for the first time in 2011 and drew hundreds of participants. Since then, the event has grown to be one of the Near Southside’s most beloved community events with attendance in the thousands and more than 120 community partners providing free activities.

Trust has participated in this event in the past, but on behalf of other businesses, like our friends Brewed. This year we decided to rep ourselves and allow people to get to know the people behind their new favorite shirt. We set up shop in front of Craftwork Coffee (one of our favorite customers and shop coffee provider) and spent the entire day mingling with people and giving people the opportunity to print their very own poster designed by us!

We also sold our limited edition shirt designed by Pavlov Visuals that we have affectionately dubbed “Artsy Boy”, plus our new “Howdy” design that we believe every Texan ought to own. Our Howdy shirt was custom designed by Trust using our Bleach print style and printed on Bella Canvas 3001 – Dark Grey Heather. The colors popped and the ink was so soft you couldn’t event feel it!

Our new Howdy shirt was a huge hit, we met a lot of awesome people, everyone had the opportunity to live print a free poster, and we were in dog heaven! We absolutely love being involved in amazing local events like this and can’t wait to be a part of Open Streets 2019!
