The year has just started but already there’s a lot happening in Kyle. From winter through the spring and into summer and fall, there are plenty of fun events for families going on throughout the year.
Valentine’s Day Dance for People with Disabilities – This special dance party for guests with physical disabilities is going down February 9 from 5:30 – 8 PM at the Gemstone Palace on Bunton Creek Road. The Valentine’s Day-themed dance party will have a DJ, giveaway prizes, snacks, games, photo opportunities, and lots more! Admission is free, but you do need to make a reservation.
Easter at the Train Depot: Hop on by the historic Kyle Train Depot over Easter weekend for this special community event. Starting on Saturday, March 30, at around 10 AM, families can come by for photos with the Easter bunny, cookies, and lemonade. This event is completely free and is sure to be a fun way to celebrate the holiday.
Kyle Market Days – This ongoing farmers’ market/craft fair is one of our favorite recurring events throughout the year. Beginning the second week of April and running through early November, the community is invited to gather at Mary Kyle Hartson Park from 9 – 2 to enjoy live music, fresh produce, and baked goods, as well as handmade arts and crafts.
Kyle Fair aTex-Travaganza – There’s no better way to welcome the end of the school year and kick off summer than a day at the fair. Head down to Lake Kyle the weekend of May 17-19 for rides, live music, games, and every kind of carnival food imaginable. It’s also the only fair we know of that aims to bring together people with the name Kyle for a celebration of Kyle!
Independence Day Celebration – Come out and celebrate our nation’s birthday with this community fireworks celebration sponsored by the City of Kyle. While this year’s event hasn’t been fully planned out, last year’s event featured the well-known Austin cover band, The Grooves putting on a free concert prior to the 9:30 PM fireworks show. The event is always free to attend, and there are plenty of visible spots to watch the show around downtown Kyle.
Kyle Pie in the Sky Festival – Perhaps Kyle’s most well-known event is this annual hot air balloon festival. This year’s event will take place August 30-31 and feature over a dozen vibrantly colored hot air balloons. In addition to hot air balloon rides, there will be live music lineup, pie baking and eating contests, and plenty of other food to satisfy your appetite.
Founders’ Day Parade – Everyone is welcome to come out the second weekend in October to share in the town’s birthday celebration at the annual Founders’ Parade. Kyle’s founding dates all the way back to 1880, and this family-friendly event will kick off the parade around noon before concluding with a small celebration at Mary Kyle Hartson Park during Kyle Market Days.
Daily Events – While the above events are some of the bigger events happening in our community, there are plenty of smaller events you can attend every day. From bird walks to yoga, movie nights, and city board meetings, your best way to stay up-to-date with what’s going on in Kyle is to check out the City Calendar.
Needless to say, there’s a lot to love about living in Kyle. If you’d like to find your dream home here, reach out to us to learn more about the Crosswinds master-planned community.
