This calendar contains a wide variety of events across the DFW Metroplex for all ages and interests. We hope you will use it as your central hub for planning your stay in DFW if you have travelled to view the Total Solar Eclipse or if you are a resident seeking to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

While the majority of the events are scheduled during the weekend before the Total Eclipse, others are programmed in the months leading up to the April 8, 2024 celestial event. Learn more about the Total Eclipse DFW here.

Event options include learning opportunities to help you and your family understand what happens during the Total Solar Eclipse, how to prepare and most importantly, how to protect your eyes during the lead up to and the aftermath of the period of totality.

Other events include music, arts, sports, celebrations, museums, businesses, food, local entertainment, tours and many others.

Here Comes The Sun – Waxahachie Texas


It’s time to make science history again . . . in the 90s, Waxahachie became internationally known as a science destination with the Superconducting Super Collider project . . . it was so cool that even Young Sheldon still talks about it today.

This time, Waxahachie, Texas, will make science history and be a science destination by being located in the path of a Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024 . . . it’s going to be so cool that YOU will be talking about it 20 years later.
