The Holidays are Here!

When it comes to the holidays, there is no shortage of fun things to do in Fredericksburg!

Here is a list of some of our favorite activities here at the office so you can make this year one to remember.


NOVEMBER 23RD: Wild Game Dinner

Join the community for a unique Hill Country evening at the Gillespie County Wild Game Dinner. This event features a wide variety of delicious buffet-style food from 21 serving stations, some of the most popular being chicken fried elk and axis back straps, grilled quail, stuffed turkey thighs, BBQ plates with trimmings and fried fish. During and after your feast, there is a raffle throughout the evening, games to play, silent auction and ending with a live auction containing over 35 items including trips, hunts, firearms and more! The proceeds benefit youth agricultural education in the Hill Country, and over the last 11 years has provided grants nearing $1,000,000.00. The event will be at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at 530 Fair Drive. The cost is $25 per person, which believe us, it’s well worth the price.

Experience the nostalgic beauty of yesteryear this holiday season in Fredericksburg. Festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. in front of the Vereins Kirche at Marktplatz with live entertainment.

This is a very special evening, so special we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join in the fun! Fredericksburg’s Main Street will be lit up by a spectacular holiday night parade starting at 6:30 p.m., and since our office is right along the parade route, we’ll be open to welcome you in for a one-of-a-kind view of the event during our Customer Appreciation Holiday Party.

This live, 10-minute drive-through presentation of the Christmas story is simply amazing. It features special lighting, music, special effects, live characters and animals and is unlike anything you’ve seen before. We encourage everyone to bring their families-we will definitely be there with ours as one of our very own agents, Ginny, will be a part of the presentation along with her family! The event starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 8:30, and is free to the community as a gift from Bethany Lutheran Church. Address: 110 W. Austin Street.

For an evening you won’t forget, head out to Johnson City to enjoy the 30th anniversary of their spectacular holiday light show. This is how to do Christmas cheer right! Free to everyone and pet friendly (we love ourselves a good pup around here), this celebration runs all season long and even offers horse-drawn carriage rides to feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Fredericksburg residents can arrange for transportation to the Light Spectacular with FBG Tours by calling 830-998-8986, so no one has to miss out on the fun.
