This Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex city in northeastern Tarrant County was settled in the late 1840s. Residents agreed to name the community Bedford, after the county in Tennessee from which many of them had come. The opening of the nearby DFW International Airport in 1973 spurred further growth, and today, Bedford's location puts it at the heart of cultural and recreational activities in the Metroplex area. Events include Twilight Thursdays free concerts in the spring and the Bedford Blues and BBQ Festival on Labor Day weekend.
