Events in The Colony

The Colony is home to an array of annual events from family-friendly affairs to competitive races and a variety of holiday themed gatherings sure to keep you entertained. Located just north of Dallas, The Colony is nicknamed “The City by the Lake” because of its location along Lewisville Lake.
