Old City Park hosts a wide range of events in addition to weddings, reunions and tours. Learn more below or view all upcoming events here.

Candlelight at Old City Park

Travel back in time with us at our annual Candlelight holiday celebration, where you can sing along with strolling carolers, tell St. Nicholas your holiday wishes, and make holiday crafts. The Park will be decked in festive lights and traditional decor, Willie and Waylon will be available for photographs, local groups perform on three stages all evening. Festive foods are available for purchase from food trucks as well as a bake sale, traditional kettle korn, nuts and more. 

Jazz Age Sunday Social

Enjoy a party unlike any other – a true vintage-inspired event done right, featuring traditional jazz, dancing, antique automobiles, ‘best dressed’ contest, ice cream, food, photo booth, vendors, classic games such as croquet, horseshoes, badminton, and more. We encourage everyone to don their 1920s finery. Vintage costume is encouraged, but certainly not mandatory.

Slave Dwelling Project

Based in South Carolina, The Slave Dwelling Project’s mission is to identify and assist property owners, government agencies and organizations to preserve extant slave dwellings. This is done primarily through public programming, including sleeping overnight in these buildings.

This partnership enables both organizations to tell a broader history of life in North Texas for African Americans. We are also partnering with the Dallas Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation project to help keep the conversation going in our community.

Old-Fashioned Fourth

A wonderful event full of laughter and red, white, and blue!
Families can enjoy the shaded grounds of Old City Park as they celebrate our nation’s past. 

Chefs for Farmers

Chefs For Farmers celebrates the hard-working farmers who grow our food and the talented chefs who create locally-sourced menus. Throw in dozens of wineries, breweries, distilleries, local food artisans, DJs, and live music, and we are set for a rollicking great time!
