Events in The Colony

The Colony is home to an array of annual events from family-friendly festivals to competitive races and a variety of holiday-themed gatherings sure to keep you entertained. Located just north of Dallas, The Colony is nicknamed “The City by the Lake” because of its 23 miles of shoreline along the eastern edge of Lewisville Lake.

Plan your trip to The Colony to coincide with one of the city’s signature events. Relax with live performances and fireworks at “Liberty By The Lake” in July, or cheer on your child at the “Coach Cox’s Kids Chase” in April. Dress up in your best superhero or villain costumes and enjoy a full night of fun at the “Family Fright Night” Halloween camp-out in October. Watch the world’s best female golfers at the LPGA “Volunteers of American Classic” hosted annually at the Golf Clubs at The Tribte. Honor our nation’s veterans at the “American Heroes: A Salute to Veterans” festival in November and watch Santa flip on “The Colony Christmas Spectacular” light show at “Holiday In The Park.” 

In addition to annual festivities, the city is home to a wide variety of weekly programming and events like concerts at local music venues and outdoor movie screenings, perfect for a weekend getaway.
