City of Coppell Events

The City and its departments host a variety of family-friendly events each month from festivals and concerts to storytimes and workshops. Visit the City of Coppell’s online calendar for a list of this month’s offerings. 



March 2 - 30   |   9 am – Noon Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday   |   Biodiversity Education Center

Drop in during visiting hours every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday to learn about the Biodiversity Education Center, Coppell Nature Park, and the seasonal programs offered. While you’re there, learn about the local environment through self-guided activities and interactive resources. Then, take what you learn out on the trails to become true EcoExplorers! Themes last two weeks and will be posted on the BEC Facebook page.


Theatre Coppell – The Odd Couple

March 3 - 5  |  Friday and Saturday 8:00 pm and Sunday 2:30pm  |  Coppell Arts Center

This Tony award-winning classic comedy centers around uptight, neat Felix Ungar and easygoing, disheveled Oscar Madison as new roommates. Two suddenly single pals – a sloppy sportswriter and a fastidious news writer – strain their friendship by becoming roommates and unconsciously repeating the same mistakes they made in the marriages they just left. Neil Simon's classic 1965 comedy has at its heart, a story of individuals trying to connect through their differences and trying to make their way through difficult times. Loyalty and kindness overcome personality quirks and differences. Tickets are available at online at Coppell Arts Center
