Slow Down and Enjoy a Small Town Christmas in Boerne

The warmth of the Christmas spirit is beyond compare. Take time this holiday season to slow the pace of life down and rediscover the meaning of Christmas this year. Savor the special moments with loved ones that will become treasured memories for years to come.

Holiday events are taking on a new feel that will stir feelings of a simpler time. Boerne welcomes you to come “Home for the Holidays”. You may not call Boerne home, but you will find that familiar feeling of home in your heart while you are here! Book a stay in one of our unique rental properties or a cozy room in a comfortable hotel. Weekends leading up to Christmas will be filled with wholesome festivities and delightful surprises.

The Hill Country Mile and its historic buildings shine brightly during the Christmas season all dressed up in garland, lights, and bows; perfect for snapping that perfect family Christmas card photo. Christmas music will greet guests as they pop in and out of the unique and independently owned boutiques, art galleries, and elevated restaurants that Boerne is known for. You may run across some surprises like Victorian-era revelers while you explore. Shops will be open until 9:00 pm on November 27 -28, December 4-5, and December 11-12 so plan to stay out late and get lost in the moment.

Many restaurants choose to coordinate and curate special holiday menus and tastings this time of year. Take a moment to check their social media accounts before making your reservation to see what flavorful fare is in store for your visit.

In addition to the quality shopping on the Hill Country Mile, Boerne has an assortment of special craft markets on the calendar for the remainder of the year where you can search dozens of booths for that perfect gift for your loved ones. New to the line-up and Main Plaza in downtown Boerne is an Open-Air Handmade Market from Noon- 9:00 pm on November 27-28 and December 4-5.

Boerne is fortunate to have not one but TWO large-scale lighting events that take place between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Tickets are available online now for Old West Christmas Light Fest and Christmas on the Ranch, so mark your calendar for a unique and festive lighted experience here in Boerne! Take note that the Big Man himself will be available for photos at both of these events as well.

Other noteworthy events to enhance your small town visit include Christmas at the Kuhlmann-King Museum (November 28 and December 12), a Christmas Car Show (November 28), and A Drive Through Bethlehem (December 9 and 10). We also hear that Ol’ Saint Nick will be making an appearance on an antique tractor at the Christmas Antique Tractor Pull, Engine Show, and Hand Crafted Market on December 19th!   

There is something for everyone here this holiday season. Boerne is waiting for you to come home for Christmas. We will see you soon!
