Discover Downtown Wylie

Historic downtown, the heart and soul of Wide Awake Wylie

Wylie has become one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas, but the place to be seen is still Historic Downtown Wylie. With the many shops, century-old buildings and Olde City Park, there is something for everybody.

With activities planned on Ballard St, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see your friends and neighbors. Families with children can enjoy play time in the park. Children and teens can spend time at any number of the local church’s rec activities. Take care of your chores with dozens of service companies here, enjoy some of the best local food around, stay in shape at the local fitness centers, pamper yourself at the salons and shops, or sing along at the famous Wylie Opry. There are many wonderful shops and services in historic Downtown Wylie.

Wylie Jubilee was a Lot of Fun!

Bluegrass Logo

The Wylie Jubilee Bluegrass on Ballard was a big success this year! Thousands of people, 100+ vendors, six great bands, many individuals picking in shops, on the porches, under the pavilions, 100+ classic autos in the show, lots of great food, and a ton of help and sponsorship made the day a blast. So many people had so much fun, we can’t wait till next year! The Wylie Downtown Merchants Association thanks all that participated in the event and everyone that showed up to have a great time. Enjoy the rest of the summer and we will see you again this fall for Boo on Ballard and the winter Christmas festival. Check out the events page for upcoming events in and around downtown Wylie TX.
