Holiday at the Arboretum

November 7 @ 9:00 am - December 31 @ 5:00 pm

$2 – $65

Holiday at the Arboretum features the 12 Days of Christmas and The Christmas Village. Stroll the garden to see the 25-foot-tall elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos that represent each of The 12 Days of Christmas, presented by Reliant. In the evenings, the garden is open late for a special lighted nighttime experience with over a million lights; the gazebos and Christmas Village come to life. Visit with Santa Claus every night after Thanksgiving and enjoy entertainment, shopping, food and beverage options.

Starting November 27, visit the expanded Christmas Village in Pecan Grove. These life-size European-style houses are on display both day and night with lighted trees, shop owners passing out samples and live entertainment. Santa Claus has his own house and a sleigh for photo opportunities. This year includes a new German-built authentic Christmas Pyramid. Each level has animation, a Tavern, a Chocolate Shop and a Toy Shop. Visit www.dallasarboretum.org/holiday for a full list of dates and times to visit.
