Addison, Texas

Addison dates back to the Republic of Texas when it was settled as part of Peters' Colony as early as 1846. The village was established when the St. Louis Southwestern Railroad arrived in early 1880s, and was named for Addison Robertson, the postmaster. Today, the city location, 15 minutes north of Dallas, offers abundant opportunities for shopping, lodging, and dining within a five-mile radius.

The Addison Arts & Events District features a one-of-a-kind collection of indoor and outdoor venues that can help make any meeting or conference special.

Annual events include the NorthTexas Jazz festival in April, Taste Addison and ArtFest in May, Shakespeare Festival in June, Addison Kaboom Town! in July, and Oktoberfest in Sept. Addison Airport is the third-busiest general aviation airport in the country.
