In 2012, Forney Parks and Recreation completed the state-of-the-art, 5,000 seat outdoor amphitheater endowed to the Forney community by lifetime resident Mick Spellman. The Spellman hosts concerts, movies in the park and other community events throughout the year. For more information on The Spellman Amphitheater, click here.
Since 2010, the 125+ member organization has been a driver in bringing more fun and creativity to Forney. In conjunction with the business community and FISD, the group provides a venue for local artists to display their works and wares at Downtown Forney's Second Saturdays open market. Forney Live! is a singer-songwriter series which brings the writers of famous songs into the living room of local historic homes. The group is open to all ages and art mediums, including dance, culinary, pottery, quilting, drama and other expressive forms. Their website is forneyarts.org.
Award-winning Forney ISD programs integrate arts & culture throughout the community.
