During the April 13 meeting, City Council members approved staff’s request for in-person summer events to begin May 3, with suggested COVID-19 precautions at each event. This means the official return of summer camps, library programs, senior citizen programming, and much more.
Bedford staff is in the process of planning a great summer camp program. Details and a registration link can be viewed at www.bedfordtx.gov/summercamp. Registration for camp will begin on 5/10/2021 for those wanting to register for all ten weeks of camp. Registration for individual weeks will begin on Saturday, 5/15/2021. More information will be provided when available.
In-person library programs will return next month, starting with Family Story Time and “Moment of Science” programs on Tuesday, June 1. For all upcoming Bedford Public Library events, please visit https://bedfordlibrary.org/.
Senior events and programs will also return around the same time, with most activities at Old Bedford School and the Public Library. Seniors can look forward to a regular dance night at the Library, which is in the works. More details to come.

The City will not hold the annual Blues and BBQ Fest this year. Instead, City officials will take the extra time that’s needed to fully reimagine and create a new signature event for the community. Over the next year, there will be multiple discussions with City Council and the time necessary for planning and securing great entertainment and vendors. The Council plans to host the City’s future signature event in 2022 at the perfect venue, the new Generations Park.
The Boys Ranch Activity Center, Bedford Senior Center Building, Bedford Onstage Building, Arts Council North-East Building, Splash Water Park and the Club House for Special Needs are all permanently closed.
