About Mesquite


Located just minutes east of Dallas, Mesquite combines the best of the old West with award-winning historic sites and the latest in shopping and the arts. Enjoy professional rodeo at the Mesquite Championship Rodeo, where bucking bulls and racing cowgirls will make your heart pound. Mesquite Arena, home of the Mesquite Championship Rodeo, also hosts concerts, Arena across, and other events throughout the year.


You’ll enjoy outstanding musical and theater productions, along with amazing exhibits, at the Mesquite Arts Center. Explore Mesquite’s pioneer heritage at the Florence Ranch Homestead and the Opal Lawrence Historical Park, and round out your day with a shopping and dining excursion in The Rows of Texas. Plan to join us for the Summer Sizzle festival, a family-fun celebration of summer, with music, crafts, a BBQ Cook-off and a spectacular fireworks show, held each June.
