Celebrate the Holidays at Texas State Parks

Holidays memories are waiting to be made...

The chill in the air, the smell of a campfire, the laughter of friends and family…there’s no doubt the holidays are a special time of the year. So this year, take a break from the shopping centers and the routine holiday office parties, and celebrate at a Texas State Park. With more than 40 holiday-themed events happening across the state, you’re sure to find something to make this special season a little brighter for you and your family.

Hitting the open road this holiday season? Download a copy of our “Christmas in the Parks” brochure and plan your next visit. From hayrides and hot cocoa to historic homes and farms decked out for the holidays, there’s something fun happening close to you. If you’re planning on having a holiday gathering, take it outside!
