NOLANVILLE, -Grab your Pearls, fringes, and fedoras; The City of Nolanville will be hosting its 11th Annual Train Whistle Jamboree and Fox Trot 1K/5K on September 30, and this year we are headed back to the “Roaring 20’s”. The event will be held at Nolanville City Hall, 101 N 5th Street, with the Fox Trot festivities starting at 9 AM and the Jamboree kicking off at 5 PM. Parking for both events will be along Avenue G.

Runners, joggers, and walkers alike can sign up at Fox Trot - CENTEX Race Series ( up until 11:59 PM September 28, or you can register on the morning of the event at City Hall. Pre-registration that guarantees each racer a collector’s medal and official race shirt is available until September 15.

The race starts at 9 AM at City Hall. The 5K will weave throughout the City before returning the runners to City Hall for the finish line. The 1K starts simultaneously and has a different turnaround point that will get runners back to City Hall, where they will be met with fun colors.

The fun doesn't stop after the race is over. Join us again at City Hall from 5-9 PM for the Train Whistle Jamboree. The Jamboree's goal has always been to have a free, family-friendly event for the community to come together and enjoy.

This year's event is jam-packed with community vendors, non-profit booths, and food trucks. Also joining this year's lineup are two bands, Jon Austin band & D-Soul Davis Experience, a mechanical bull, a petting zoo, face painting multiple moon bounces, a DJ, and more. Don't forget the ever popular Pie Eating contest!

Cost is free for the community to attend, and food, drinks, crafts, and merchandise from local vendors are available for purchase. All the above-listed activities, such as moon bounces, face painting, petting zoo, bands, etc., are available at no additional cost.

The City of Nolanville and its staff have worked hard all year, making this event a reality for the community. Most of the work is done in-house with our staff to help keep the overall cost down but without community sponsors and area businesses who donate items, funds, and manpower, this event would not be as big and unique as it has become.

The City would like to thank our 2023 event sponsors for making this year the best year yet.
