Celebrate Dickens and So Much More…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and downtown Boerne is getting dressed up and ready for nearly a month full of holiday fun for the whole family! Kicking it all off on Thanksgiving weekend is Dickens on Main, which transforms the Hill Country Mile into a vintage Christmas wonderland, complete with themed “villages," beautiful holiday lights, snow, and an entertainment lineup that everyone will love.

Dickens on Main Characters- Photo Credit: E. CastleThis year’s Dickens on Main will be held Friday and Saturday, November 25 and 26, and will feature all the favorites to keep the traditions going strong. Revelers can dance in the snow up and down Main Street, which is always great for a selfie or two, while ice-sculpting battles, live music and theatrical performances, kids crafts, and more will entertain the whole crew. Food trucks and unique vendors of all types can be found throughout the festival, and you’ll love the street performers and musicians as they surprise and delight during the evening. The holidays officially begin with the lighting of the City’s brand-new Christmas tree in Main Plaza on Friday, November 25, at 6 PM. Before the lighting, join us at the gazebo at 5:00 PM for caroling led by the Geneva Chorale and 5:30 PM for Castle Brass! 

Night Parade in downtown BoerneThe celebrations continue with Weihnachts Weekend, which includes the annual Weihnachts parade Saturday, December 3, at 6 PM, and the Weihnachts holiday market on Saturday and Sunday at Main Plaza. Shop and dine throughout the day and enjoy more than 100 beautifully lit and decorated floats as they make their way through the heart of downtown Boerne. 

Santa with a girlWhile the City of Boerne produces and manages Dickens on Main and Weihnachts Weekend, the Boerne Retailer and Restaurant Owners Association is hosting two additional weekends of holiday fun. A Toast to Olde Town, December 9-11, will feature live music Friday and Saturday nights at the Hill Country Mile’s three breweries, Tusculum Brewing Co., Cibolo Creek Brewing Co, and Free Roam Brewing Co. and wassail tastings at participating stores on Saturday. A Christmas market can be found Saturday and Sunday at Main Plaza, and of course all of Main Street’s shops, restaurants, and galleries will be open and all decked out for the season. The weekend of December 16 is all about the kids as Kinder Fest features fun activities for all ages. Friday and Saturday, join in on a Santa Scavenger Hunt and enter to win a gift basket, then make your way down to J. Forks Designs Saturday to get a picture with the big man himself. Saturday and Sunday head to Main plaza for the Cowboy Christmas Market—the final market of the year! 

For information and a schedule of events for all things Christmas in Boerne, visit and be sure to like Dickens on Main on Facebook and Instagram! Please note that Dickens on Main is only Thanksgiving weekend, and all other events are separately scheduled and run!
