Discover an immersive holiday experience at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens during Christmas Village at Bayou Bend, presented by Texas Children’s. A dazzling bridge brings you into a winter wonderland featuring thousands of lights throughout the 14-acre estate. Highlights: 

  • Tour the first floor of Ima Hogg’s historic house to see live actors, theatrical effects, and beautiful Christmas decorations.*
  • Watch a handcrafted model train circle the beautifully decorated 15-foot Christmas tree.
  • Go sledding down a faux-snow slide.
  • Toss around cotton snowballs with your friends.
  • Join in games for all ages, from a scavenger hunt to antler rings and beyond.
  • Marvel at a 3D video animation presented by LD Systems.
  • Listen to music from carolers, and play your own holiday tunes at music-bell stations.
  • Stop by the Cottage Shop to find unique holiday gifts.
  • Take photos with Santa ($10), who visits through December 23.
  • Drinks are for sale at the bar. A variety of food, sweets, and drinks will be available for purchase.
  • *Upgrade your evening with a theatrical, holiday-themed tour of the first floor of the house! Here’s how it works: Choose a time to tour the house, and you can explore Christmas Village throughout the entire evening, before and after your house tour. (The tour adds $5 to any admission, including the free tickets for young children.) Be sure to allow time to park, walk to the entrance, and arrive at the house.
