Celebrate the Season in Boerne
Dickens on Main & Hill Country Mile Holiday Fun
Join us for a magical holiday season in downtown Boerne filled with 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 wassail tastings, and Kinder Fest, filled with fun surprises for the whole family, including the Cookie Crawl! The holidays are full of excitement in Boerne.
Something NEW this year. For the first time ever, Boerne has an ice skating rink. Reserve your time on the ice in advance for you and your loved ones this year.
Enjoy 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 the sounds of the Christmas season with contemporary classics and beloved carols. New this year, the cave is hosting A Nordic Christmas featuring the Texas Cellos. They will be performing a traditional Nordic cello choir, representing a stunning Scandinavian tradition for St. Lucia's Day. Celebrate the Winter Solstice in the cave with music as well. The Boerne Concert Band will be celebrating the season with their Christmas Concert featuring popular favorites and classics performed by band members from all over the Texas Hill Country. The First Baptist Church will be hosting their annual Christmas Worship Concert (three times to join), and all are welcome to celebrate the reason for the season.
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, where all can sing in celebration of the arrival of the Christ child.
Shop 'Til You Drop

Twinkle Lights All-Around
Boerne shines this time of year. The Hill Country Mile is adorned with garland and is dripping with classic white twinkling lights. Head for the hills for an immersive lighting experience at not one but four special lighting events that last throughout the entire season. Grab tickets for The Jones CHRISTmas Ranch, Christmas Lights at the Crumbling Castle, or the Old West Christmas Light Fest. Celebrate the season at First Baptist Church Boerne at Boerne Bright. Celebrate Chanukah with a menorah lighting and traditional refreshments at Main Plaza as well. Here is a helpful guide to some of these bright events and more around town!
