4 Waxahachie Celebrations You Won't See Anywhere Else
By Meagan Camp
Waxahachie's reputation as a city of celebration is no joke. We have festivals and events year round that attract cinephiles, history buffs, interior designers (and Pinterest lovers) and even time travelers with an affection for England in the 16th century. Choose a month on the calendar and you can bet that we have something family friendly and unexpected that we are celebrating.
Crossroads of Texas Film & Music Festival, every April, www.crossroadsoftxff.com. Ellis County has an unexpectedly rich history with Hollywood having been the setting for numerous indie and big budget films including the Oscar-winning "Places in the Heart" written as a love letter to writer Robert Benton's childhood growing up in Waxahachie. Every year filmmakers, movie buffs, critics and songwriters gather in Waxahachie to enjoy this history at various locations including the vaudeville-era Texas Theater built in 1890.
