  • The annual Depot Day festival is the second Saturday in October. Hosted by the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, it is one of Gainesville’s signature events and Depot Day welcomes both local and out of town festival goers to our historic downtown.

    Live entertainment is always a crowd pleaser on the southwest corner of the courthouse square during this family friendly festival and don’t miss the Lonestar Action Sports Stunt Team performances!

    The downtown festival begins at 10:00 Saturday morning and will also feature the Kids Zone, arts & crafts vendors, an antique car show that features over 200 cars, festival foods,  and live entertainment.

  • Scare on the Square is a trick-or-treating event that takes place on Halloween each year in Downtown Gainesville. The Downtown businesses hand out candy to trick-or-treaters.

    Other businesses are able to set up a booth and hand out candy and goodies at the Farmers Market. We will have music, food trucks, and fun! This is a free event open to the public.
