Exciting City Events
Special EVENTS
Harkening back to a day when people sat on their front porch in the evening and visited with neighbors that were also dear friends, Farmers Branch hosts dozens of events every year. These events serve to bring the community together and to bring those from outside the 12 square miles that is Farmers Branch into "The City in a Park" to experience this unique small town atmosphere.

Signature events in "The Branch" include: Liberty Fest, Bloomin' Bluegrass, Halloween in The Park, Stars and Spokes, Bark in The Park and the Christmas Tour of Lights.
