Community Events

The City of Balch Springs is proud to sponsor fun filed events throughout the year.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have modified or canceled several of our 2021 events. We understand how frustrating these changes can be, but we remain hopeful that one day the pandemic will be behind us and we can resume our normal lives.  Until then, we will accommodate the safety of our Community accordingly.  

All events are subject to cancelation or changes as COVID-19 may affect future Community Events. We will keep you updated so please check back often.
