logoThe City of Belton hosts, co-hosts, partners, and participates in many special events throughout the year. The goal for our events is to bring the community together and enhance the quality of life.
Events provide meaningful activities for children and give families a reason to get out of the house. If you are looking for a great place to host an event, contact the Belton Parks and Recreation office, which can walk you through the steps.
Belton is a beautiful city with great amenities. The best way to stay in the know regarding our events is to subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter!
