Let’s be honest—what shopping experience sounds more enjoyable: scrolling through your phone and placing an order for a gift “that will do”? Or planning a social outing with friends, sipping on a glass of wine, while discovering special gifts that will WOW your loved ones?
This holiday season, make time to attend one of the following events and then stroll through beautifully decorated shops on the Hill Country Mile. They have all been carefully merchandised with unique gifts that will not be duplicated under the tree. While you’re shopping in Boerne, you’re sure to find that holiday spirit that can sometimes be hard to find with a busy lifestyle!
Make it a ladies’ night at this bi-annual event! Friday’s event includes, drinks, dessert, live music, and giveaways! Both days will include shopping where you’ll find nothing but exceptionally made hand-crafted gift items—blankets, clothing, toys, body products and so much more!
Celebrate the “diva” in you by shopping late with all your friends along Boerne’s Hill Country Mile. Shops offer great deals and loads of fun! Carefully browse through the fabulous boutiques for items and gifts you won’t find anywhere else. Our shopping is as “unique as our name”! Live music always accompanies this event, and be sure to dine on The Mile while you’re here.
3 Holiday Market Days Events
What’s better than Boerne Market Days? Boerne Market Days with Christmas sprinkled all over it! Holiday Market Days (Nov. 9-10) kicks off the festive fun in November! Santa will even make an appearance at Christmas Market Days (Dec. 14-15) and Cowboy Christmas Market Days (Dec. 21-22). Pictures are welcomed and encouraged. Live music is played, so sing along to some of your favorite holiday tunes to add to your experience!
The Boerne Fall Antiques Show is an antique shopper’s delight! The Kendall County Fairgrounds becomes an emporium of glassware, country furniture, jewelry, quilts, bags, and more. The elegance of an antique will add a touch of specialty and history to someone on your Christmas list (or maybe your own)!
As Boerne’s largest event of the year, there is so much to look forward to when you become a part of the annual Dickens On Main event. Before your Thanksgiving turkey is even fully digested, you and your family can be playing in the snow, slipping down a snow slide, singing Christmas carols and hunting down that perfect gift along the Hill Country Mile! Each store along Main Street decks their store fronts in holiday décor, and it’s truly a magical sight worth ALL of your selfies this year!
For more than 3 decades, Oma’s Christmas Craft Fair has offered unique, specialty handmade crafts and gifts. Relish in the joy of seeing the look on your loved ones’ faces when they unwrap a one-of-a-kind gift! Concessions and photos with Santa are always a must if you’re planning on making it to this event, as well.
