Mark your calendars! In honor of Deer Park's 125th anniversary, all residents are invited to a special concert and community event on Saturday, November 4th from 4-9PM, featuring country music star RaeLynn.

Partnering with Shell, the 125th Anniversary Committee - which includes participation from the City of Deer Park, the Deer Park Independent School District and the Deer Park Chamber of Commerce - is offering a family-friendly afternoon of food, history and fun, leading up to an evening concert! Best of all - it's free to attend!

The event will be held in the Abshier Stadium Parking lot - parking arrangements will be made available as the event approaches.

"We've spent the entire year building up to this event, and we're looking forward to bringing all of Deer Park together for this family-friendly concert event," Mayor Jerry Mouton said. "It is an honor to announce that RaeLynn, whose hits include 'Lonely Call' and 'Love Triangle,' will be the headliner of our event, with Shell's 7 Mile Perimeter setting the stage.

"We want to see our entire community take part in this event - let's celebrate our birthday as a City!"

Join us for the Shell Experience including a walk through Shell’s history in Deer Park, exploring Shell’s business in virtual reality and other family fun. Also, make sure to bring your appetite and some spending money - food trucks from around the Houston and southeast Texas region will offer a variety of delicious treats!

2017 is a great time to visit Deer Park!

If you're looking for a destination that gives you convenient access to Houston, Galveston and a whole region of history, outdoor activities and fun, come to Deer Park! Throughout 2017, we will be celebrating our 125th anniversary as a City, which means even more family-friendly events, chances to learn about Texas history and lots of fun!

There's truly something for everyone in our city - from the Battleground Golf Course to a range of dining and shopping venues, you'll be surprised to find many amenities and activities right here in Deer Park! Take our history for example - not only are we lucky enough to be just a few miles away from the San Jacinto Monument and the Battleship TEXAS, but we have plenty of our own history to share as well! We're home to Patrick's Cabin, the site where the initial treaty papers were drafted following the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836, securing Texas' independence from Mexico. For that reason, we proudly hold the distinction of being the "Birthplace of Texas."

But, just because we love our history doesn't mean we live in the past! All year long, we host community events like "Dive-In" movies at the Dow Park Pool, free open-air concerts and holiday events that are perfect for families! We're also home to the Battleground Golf Course, an 18-hole, 72-par facility that's also great for special gatherings.

Deer Park is also home to the Art Park Players, one of the last dinner theater groups in the state! With four full-scale productions a year, there's always a chance to come for a production and explore for the rest of the weekend!

We also have dining options for any budget or need - whether you're in the mood for Mediterranean or just a quick burger, we have lots of local restaurants that you won't find anywhere else, as well as the major chains you know and love!

If you're coming to town for the weekend or for a longer stay, check this Web site for updates and don't forget to ask any of our hotels about our STAYDP discount rates!
