Enhancing residents’ quality of life

Special Events

Gallatin Leisure Services aims to inspire a strong feeling of community among Gallatin residents—GLS events play a big part in that mission. When neighbors gather for fun and recreation, memories are created and community bonds are strengthened.

With that in mind, GLS hosts or organizes more than 50 events every year—a handful of which have become staples for Gallatin fun. To get in on the excitement, explore our upcoming events and mark your calendar for the reoccurring festivities below.
