Life in Grapevine

Grapevine is known for its authentic Texas charm. Our city represents the best of what Texas has to offer: a thriving historic downtown, an active and vibrant community, fantastic shopping, dining, and entertainment, and a coveted school district in the center of one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country.

Grapevine knows how to throw a party and is home to renowned festivals and events that include: Main Street Fest, a three-day craft beer festival; Grapefest, the largest wine festival in the Southwest; and 1,400 Christmas events that make us the Christmas Capital of Texas. These events -- along with the Gaylord Texan, Great Wolf Lodge, and local wineries -- bring over 19-million visitors to Grapevine every year.
