Celebrate Southlake is a community event designed to bring the people of Southlake together in celebration of cultural diversity through food, music, performances, entertainment, and engaging conversations. This event started in 2017 with the rededication of Frank Edgar Cornish, IV Park in Southlake Town Square.
Mr. Cornish, a former Dallas Cowboy, was also a long-time resident of Southlake and the Chairperson of the Parks and Recreation Board before he passed away in 2008. The park, which thousands of people enjoy every year, was dedicated in his honor on October 10, 2009.
Hosted by the Mayor’s Alliance for Unity and Culture, this dinner was a special opportunity to get to know your neighbors while breaking bread together. A variety of local cultural cuisines were served with plenty of seating at a community farm table.
Cultural Performances and Activities at Aria Amphitheater
We have celebrated Southlake through cultural performances and activities. Attendees were invited to "travel the world" collecting stamps in a free Celebrate Southlake passport as they explored each culture booth with hands-on activities and world cuisine tastings. Kids and adults enjoyed lawn games and various interactive activities.
Family Trivia Competition at Champions Club, Hall of Fame Rooms
Attendees were able to "face-off" against friends and neighbors in a friendly, but competitive trivia battle! Teams of six people brought their knowledge of local and world history and culture for an afternoon of fun! Prizes were awarded each round with the last team standing taking home the grand prize.
