Officials have released an official list of special events planned throughout the year. Look below for a full list of events.

Taste Addison: June 2-3

Sample all that Addison has to offer at Taste Addison, the iconic festival that dates back to 1993.

Addison Oktoberfest: Sept. 14-17

At Addison Oktoberfest, enjoy a taste of the original Bavarian celebration with a purely Texan twist. For more than 35 years, people have donned dirndls and lederhosen (or have just come as they are) for four days of revelry in German culture, food, music and bier. Experience the sound of polka bands and other traditional entertainers on multiple stages in Addison Circle Park, and participate in special games for bier lovers, kids of all ages, dachshunds and more. Raise your favorite German stein and say, “Prost!”
