Discover an immersive Christmas experience at beautiful Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens. This year's Christmas Village is more exciting than ever! Get in the spirit of the holiday with carolers, Santa, a faux-snowball play area, holiday treats, art-making activities, and—on eight nights—a live reindeer, all on 14 acres of gardens and art nestled in River Oaks. Christmas Village is rain or shine!

  • Step into the stained-glass Spiegeltent for seasonal music, holiday treats, and photos with Santa! Don't miss the delightful, handcrafted model train that bustles around the Spiegeltent's sparkling Christmas tree, complete with faux snow.

  • Feel holiday cheer as caroling trio the MistleTones bring traditional holiday songs to Christmas Village.
  • Meet Jingles, a live reindeer who visits on December 16–23! Kids can also go on a special scavenger hunt every day of Christmas Village to spot eight reindeer statues who have run away from Santa's sleigh.
  • Let it snow! Toss some faux-snowballs in the Snowball Zone.
  • Pick up a perfect gift or souvenir at shop stations around the grounds and inside the Spiegeltent.
