WELCOME TO BOWIE, TEXAS!

Why choose Bowie, Texas? Because there is nothing more admirable than a spirit that wants to be here. That is what our community is based on – the strong, pioneering spirit. It began in the early 1880s and to this day continues to build on this rich history while holding tight to the smalltown feel.

Bowie is home to the World’s Largest Jim Bowie Knife – the official knife of the State of Texas – and the second-largest Second Monday Trade Days event in Texas. We are located just 60 miles northwest of the DFW. Always remember as is etched on the Bowie knife, “Attitude is everything when it comes to where you are, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there.”

Each year on the first Saturday in October, the community continues to pay tribute to the town’s history. Amon G. Carter and Mose Johnson were the entrepreneurs of peddling chicken and bread sandwiches to travelers stopped at the train depot. [Read More]

BOWIE… OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR BUSINESS GROWTH.

In 1998, the residents of Bowie approved a one-half of one percent sales tax dedicated to promoting economic development in the City of Bowie. These funds must be expended in accordance with State Law to facilitate eligible projects. The responsibility of the Bowie Economic Development Corporation is to reinvest the funds in Bowie, to expand the city property tax base, and create quality (primary) job opportunities.

Interested companies are required to complete an incentive proposal that requires a business plan and/or model, financial statements for three years, and a third-party economic impact study to determine the projected economic impact the business will have on the City of Bowie.

THE WORLD’S LARGEST BOWIE KNIFE

The Bowie Knife is done! We have built the world’s largest Bowie Knife, certified by the Guinness World Records measuring 6.24 m (20 ft 6 in) long.

If you’ve ever dreamed of getting your name in the world’s most famous record book, this is your chance to do the next best thing!! It’s not too late to have your name or memorial chiseled in granite. We still have tiles in all sizes available… prices for tiles range from $250.00 to $550.00. Want to make a larger contribution? We still have a limited number of benches available for $5,000.00.

The idea of the ‘Bowie Knife Monument’ was pitched to the Bowie Chamber of Commerce by the late Bob Hadley, local rancher and bronze sculptor. Board members Bryan Brown and Van Baize are the Bowie Knife Project Committee Chairmen. “This is an exciting addition to our city. We look forward to meeting the many visitors that will come through Bowie to stop and see our knife”, says Baize. [Read More]
