UPDATE MARCH 12, 2020: Celebrate Southlake has been postponed. Read more here.
Join us March 20-22 for a weekend of celebrating our diversity at The Marq Southlake!
Celebrate Southlake is a community event designed to bring the people of Southlake together in celebration of our cultural diversity through food, music, performances, entertainment, and engaging conversations. This year’s event will be expanded into a full weekend of family activities, starting with a community dinner on Friday evening at 5:00 p.m. Sit side-by-side with your neighbors, taste a variety of world cuisines, and feast on engaging conversation.
Return to the Aria on Saturday from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. to “travel the world” by visiting cultural booths and collecting stamps in your Celebrate Southlake passport. Your passport will make the perfect keepsake to commemorate the festival and all your discoveries. You’ll also take in performances, entertainment, music, crafts and more as you explore.
The weekend will wrap up with a family-friendly trivia day at Champions Club on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Teams of 6 will compete to answer questions and prove their knowledge of local and world history and culture. Prizes will be awarded each round, with the last team standing taking home the grand prize.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
The Apex Arts League and the Avant Chamber Ballet present the Nutcracker: Short and Suite in conjunction with the world premiere of Katie Cooper’s Winter from Vivaldi’s The Seasons on November 15 at 7:30 p.m. at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church.
Join us as we witness this whimsical event complete with professional dancers, designer costumes and outstanding choreography accompanied by music from the Cezanne String Quartet.
“This performance is a perfect introduction to live classical music and dance,” says ACB artistic director Katie Cooper. “Vivaldi’s Seasons is one of the most recognized pieces of music, but to see it with choreography and dance takes it to another level for the viewer. Nutcracker: Short and Suite is the second half of the evening with the best parts of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and all the characters that you love.”
