The 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!
Young ladies and their dads (or other father figures) enjoy this special date night together. The evening includes refreshments, dancing, games, prizes, and a photo booth.
One Community One Day is a community-wide service project organized by Belton’s YAC (Youth Advisory Commission) and the Parks & Recreation Department. The goal is to assist Belton residents with yard work, painting, or minor repairs. Residents apply for assistance at the Harris Community Center or online through the city’s website. Following a review process, homes are selected for assistance.
