Celebrate Weihnachtszeit in Wine Country

What to expect out of the holiday season in Fredericksburg, Texas

Thanks to the ever-expanding community of Cedar Park, there is so much to do during the holidays right in your own backyard. But what about those days when you want to get away with the family? Take a weekend of your December for the festivities in a city that rivals your favorite Hallmark movie—Fredericksburg. Having been named one of “The Best Small Towns for Christmas in the South,” Fredericksburg has something for everyone.

Christmas Nights of Lights

Running daily from November 22nd to January 6th, the Fredericksburg Convention & Visitor Bureau puts on Christmas Nights of Lights. Following holiday music and a 10-minute audio presentation, the Community Christmas Tree and German Christmas Pyramid will be lit in Marketplatz.


The Pioneer Museum, which is known for its preservation of 19th-century German heritage, is also known for its Kinderfest tradition. For over 40 years, on the first Saturday of December, children have been able to bring a stocking to hang on the fireplace and listen to the telling of a Christmas story.

Tannenbaum Ball

On December 10th, the Gillespie Historical Society and the Pioneer Museum will host Fredericksburg’s premier gala event of the holiday season at St. Mary’s Holy Family Center. Partake in a silent auction featuring lavish trips, dance along to a live band, and delight in the finest wine and dinner.

Santa Fly-In

Head to the Gillespie County Airport on December 17th to see Santa arrive in a vintage airplane. While you enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, the Fredericksburg Flying Club will be collecting canned goods for the local food pantry.

Countdown to the New Year

If you are looking for a family-friendly way to ring in 2023, look no further than the City of Fredericksburg’s Parks & Recreation Department’s New Year’s Eve event. There will be free activities, dancing, and a ball drop at 6:30 PM.
