About Celina

Take a walk down Main Street and immediately you know, things are just a little bit different here. Country music softly plays throughout the downtown streets and a welcoming spirit from shop owners and residents alike, make you feel as if your family has been here for generations, too. Maybe it’s the small touches like these that make the big impact. Or the economic advantages that are getting businesses to take root here. But one thing is for sure. People choose Celina for a reason.

Currently estimated at 40,000, the City of Celina’s population has more than tripled since 2010, making it the fastest growing city in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. And with growth projections of 350,000, Celina is positioned geographically, demographically and economically to quickly become a major player in the North Texas metropolitan community, creating unique opportunities for businesses and residents unlike any other.

From a strong community spirit comes a series of annual events that keep up the momentum of family fun. From Friday Night Farmer’s Markets to Movies on The Square, Parkfest and Celina’s signature event, CajunFest. And holidays even get an upgrade here with Blast 4th of July Celebration, Trick-or-Treat on the Square and Christmas on The Square.

So much promise lives right here. In a community that opens its arms and welcomes new growth and new opportunities for a new age.


As retail and commercial businesses are moving into Celina, expansion and development are keeping a rapid pace throughout the city. With a population of approximately 40,000 and an ideal location in the coveted Collin County corridor, Celina is welcoming to your family and your business!
