Lindale’s commitment to music is undeniable. That commitment, along with the success of our Hometown Girl, has turned our small town into the entertainment capital of East Texas.
Lindale is both honored and proud to be the fifth city in Texas to earn the Governor’s distinction of a Texas Music Friendly Community, coming in just after the big cities of Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Denton. Lindale is also proud to be the first Texas Music Friendly Community to be featured in Texas Music Magazine.
With this distinction, Lindale has become a country-music magnet of sorts, attracting musicians, artists, and “Ran Fans” alike. With five different stages to choose from, Lindale’s Cannery Complex provides bands and audiences the perfect spot to sit and sing a spell.
Fountain Stage, near the center of The Cannery Complex, hosts smaller bands to entertain guests as they shop and enjoy the East Texas sun.
Texas Music City Grill & Smokehouse has a stage and restaurant area that holds up to 500 people. It can host meetings, parties, and of course, concerts, as well as a recording studio. Regular bands are featured and perform for patrons while they enjoy great Texas food and spirits.
Picker’s Pavilion is the more-than-100-year-old building used by the original cannery. The 10,000-square-foot refurbished facility has retained its historic feel and can host up to 1,000 guests to enjoy music performed in one of East Texas’ most historic buildings.
The Cannery Stage is an outdoor complex offering a mid-sized stage area for bands to perform in front of crowds of up to 7,000 in its beautiful outdoor seating area. And, located in the heart of The Cannery and downtown Lindale is Darden Harvest Park. This city-owned 23-acre park offers plenty of nature and walking trails, but also is home to a music stage that can entertain crowds up to 10,000 strong.
