Highland Village is a city in Denton County, Texas, United States. It is a suburb of Dallas, hugging the south side of the far western branch of Lewisville Lake. As of the 2010 United States Census the city’s population was 15,056.
Highland Village incorporated as a city February 1963. It included 516 residents in the 1970 census, but the opening of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport helped spur massive growth in the city’s population: 3,246 in 1980, 7,027 in 1990, 12,173 in 2000, and 15,056 in 2010. The city remains a primarily residential area, though more business development is occurring.
Highland Village hosts an annual hot air balloon festival sponsored by local Lions Clubs. Celebrate Highland Village, formerly known as Highland Village Days, is an annual event in August that includes a fireworks show, 1K and 5K runs, live music, and a family fishing in a stocked pond.
