What is free and fun for the whole family? If you guessed any of the many community events the City of Midlothian will present in 2022, you would be right! 

Mark your calendars now for the events listed here. Organized by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department*, these events are free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of  sponsors such as Midlothian Community Development Corporation, Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, Citizens National Bank of Texas, In-n-Out Burger, Baylor Scott & White Health, Centennial Roofing, Higginbotham Brother’s Ace Hardware, Aces Heating and Air Conditioning, Marco’s Pizza, Ash Grove Cement, Holcim, Martin Marietta, and many others.

While the events are free, in some cases registration is required. Some events also have alternate dates in case of inclement weather. To receive email announcements about events, sign up for calendar notifications on the City's homepage under "Stay Informed,"  and follow the City on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. More information about each event will be posted as it becomes available on the website under "Special Events" and on the website "Calendar." 

Be sure to check the calendar listings on the City’s website often for City events and events hosted by the schools, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Business Association, and other area nonprofit groups.
