City of Kyle
The City of Kyle is a hidden gem in Hays County. Founded in 1880, Kyle was a farming community for many decades. Today, it’s a thriving city in the heart of Central Texas. We’re also known as the Pie Capital of Texas, which is a delicious honor!
We love and embrace ALL pies, including Pi, here in Kyle. Kyle-ites celebrate National Pie Day, National Pi Day, and we host the annual Kyle Pie in the Sky Hot Air Balloon Festival each Labor Day weekend. We’re also a proud member of the American Pie Council.
Kyle earned the moniker “Pie Capital of Texas” in 2018 from the U.S. Patent and Trade Office. The city is also awaiting designation by the Texas Legislature.

Visitors to Kyle can enjoy a tour of the Kyle Historic Train Depot which shares the important heritage of the train industry in Kyle. They can also play disc golf on a championship course. Or download the Texas Historical Commission app and see the historical markers. Interested in geocaching? The Kyle Chamber of Commerce has an excellent program.
Whether you decide on a hotel stay, a home rental or a Bed & Breakfast, Kyle is the perfect weekend spot for a romantic get-a-way or a family-friendly adventure. Make Kyle your home base for day trips throughout the Texas Hill Country.
Lake Kyle has catch-and-release fishing along with a playground, fishing tournaments and is the site of the annual Kyle Pie in the Sky festival. We also have Kyle Market Days on the second Saturday of the month from April - September. In October, we celebrate the birth of Kyle with our Founders Day Parade - stop by the gazebo for birthday cake! On Friday nights in the summer, Movies in the Park is a free event that is family-friendly.
The Wednesday after Thanksgiving, we hold our annual Santa on the Square, with food, music and pics with Santa. This delightful event truly captures the hometown feel of Kyle. Each New Year’s Day Kyle hosts a Polar Bear Splash at Kyle Public Pool.
And while you’re in the Pie Capital of Texas, be sure to grab some Frito Pie, chicken pot pie or pizza pie! And of course, be sure to get a slice of delicious dessert pie to top it off. And before you head home, snap a pic of our iconic downtown water tower.
