Entertainment



Tara Winery offers live music on the patio every Friday and Saturday night. 

The Henderson County Performing Arts Center has a live performance once a month and features performances such as Wizard of Oz, Rabbit Hole, Forever Plaid and more. The Texas Gospel Music Hall has live southern gospel or bluegrass gospel performances every other month.  

Let the good times roll at Athens Bowling Center! Twenty-two lanes of pure excitement are waiting for you and your family to enjoy plus an indoor miniature golf course.

Don’t be afraid to strut your stuff at Good Times Skate and show your children how you can turn corners with precision, and skate backwards. You may or may not fall, but you definitely will see a spike in your adrenaline levels. Both regular and inline skates are available.

Play a round of disc golf at Cain Park or cast a line at the catch and release fishing pond. Make a splash at the splash pad at Kiwanis Park and climb to the moon in the rocket ship. For a complete list of parks, please click here.

Finally, you can lose yourself as you become totally engrossed in the latest film release at Athens Cinema 4. Action, romance, mystery, or comedy, whatever your choice – it’s probably showing on one of four big screens in Athens.

Rain or shine, weekday or weekend, let US entertain you!
