Summer Spectacular - Events for Families

Summer Spectacular Graphic

Enjoy the best shows of the summer at your library! 


Stop by the library or visit our Eventbrite page to pick up your free tickets in advance – all audience members must have a ticket to
attend the shows, regardless of age. Popular shows have more than one performance – choose the best time for your family. These shows are well-suited for children aged 6 and older – and their grown-ups! Parents are reminded that younger children must remain at their side at all times during the show.

Children 7 years old and younger have their very own Summer Spectacular event – Preschool Dance Party! Check it out.
Tickets for each show will be released one week before the performance. Due to the limited size of our facilities, only 100 tickets are available for each performance - these will be on hand at the library or available online at weatherfordpubliclibrarytx.eventbrite.com.
Summer Spectacular events are very popular so we ask that you pick up your tickets as soon as possible. Additionally, tickets for groups will be limited – if you wish to bring a group of more than five, please contact our Manager of Youth Services, Gwendolyn Dowds-Nash.
