Downtown Events

Killeen’s Downtown Events division was formed at the end of 2021 and aims to hold at least half a dozen events in Historic Downtown each year. The events are family-friendly and diverse in age and culture—most importantly, you’re going to have a ball! We are happy to support the local businesses and vendors around town, as well as the small business located in the heart of our city downtown.
