The 24th Annual Crepe Myrtle Festival

July 3 – 4, 2022

Ever since Waxahachie was named the crepe myrtle capitol of Texas, Independence Day celebrations have been combined with a crepe myrtle festival. This year, the free event begins at 6:00 p.m. on July 3, 2022 with a city-wide tailgate party at Waxahachie Sports Complex, located at 151 Broadhead Road.

A George Strait sort of look-alike will entertain the crowd with, most likely, George Strait songs. Then, a fireworks display will begin at 9:15 p.m. Children’s activities will keep the kids busy, and a food trucks will keep stomachs full. Pop your own fireworks, though, and you’ll be escorted out of the complex with a hefty fine to pay. That all happens on Sunday.

On Monday, July 4, 2022 at 10:00 a.m., a parade begins. All veterans will be honored during the parade, which will start at Getzendaner Park, wind its way east on Main Street to Rogers Street, hang a right and conclude around City Hall in Downtown Waxahachie.
