Join us for a magical holiday season at Boerne’s all-new “A Dickens Celebration,” featuring four weekends of small-town holiday fun. Stroll Main Street and take in the holiday lights, enjoy live entertainment, food, and shopping at Dickens on Main Thanksgiving weekend. Over the first weekend in December, Weihnacht's Weekend, enjoy the annual Weihnachts Parade and Stocking Stroll. The fun continues with two more unique weekends of fun including Toast of Olde Town, perfect for a holiday date night (including a special Wednesday night classic movie in the park), and Kinder Fest, filled with fun surprises for the whole family – both new this year! The holidays are full of excitement in Boerne.

Carolers at Dickens on MainEnjoy the Sounds of the Season

Nothing says Christmas, quite like familiar carols and bell choirs. The Cave Without a Name's annual Sounds of the Season concert is a favorite holiday tradition for many. Enjoy Tinsel - an a'cappella quartet - for sounds of the Christmas Season with contemporary classics and beloved carols. The Boerne Concert Band will be celebrating the season with their Christmas Concert featuring popular favorites and classics performed by bandmembers from all over the Texas Hill Country. Boerne Performing Arts will host their special Christmas event again this year with a'capella tunes from Voctave.

It's not a concert, but the sights and sounds of the city of Bethlehem are brought to life during a Walk Through Bethlehem. The tour of the city will culminate at a live nativity and all can sing in celebration of the arrival of the Christ child. First Baptist Church will present "Light Has Come", a celebration with Christmas music. Catch one of three different performances.
