Sharpie is traveling the country with a new marker, and it made its first stop in Tarrant County.

The company stopped by the Main Street Art Festival held in Fort Worth over the weekend to let consumers test their Sharpie Creative Marker.


The Main Street Art Festival, held annually, showcases creativity across nine streets in downtown Fort Worth. The festival lets artists show off their skills through a number of mediums and allows consumers to purchase quality art.

Sharpie, one of the event sponsors, kicked off its World Is Your Canvas Tour at the festival. Sharpie brought its Sharpie bus, allowing attendees to test its new acrylic marker.

The new marker comes in two tips, either a brush or bullet tip, with paint-like ink. The marker can be used on paper, metal, wood, ceramic, glass, rock, canvas, and more without bleeding through.


“We just launched our new Sharpie creative marker, and so we’re here to get them in the hands of creators and inspire creativity across the country,” Alex King, Sharpie brand manager, shared with The Dallas Express.

“I think it’s really neat to be part of something where people can come here and express themselves and just put that creativity into play. It’s been really neat to watch people kind of open up and try different things with our new markers,” King said.

The Sharpie bus will make its way to New York City for its next stop at the Governors Ball Music Festival. The bus also has planned stops in Illinois, Michigan, California, Louisiana, and Florida.
