Dazzling Lights, Live Music and Mechanical Bull Rides, OH MY! 

It’s our favorite time of year. Our gates are open, so many of you have made time to stop by and have fun with us and every night adds new smiles, laughter and joy to our holiday season. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! And since so much of what we’re offering this year is all-new, we thought you’d like a peek into Old West Christmas Light Fest. 

This is our fifth year of glowing bright in Boerne. No matter where else you go, if you haven’t been to Old West Christmas Light Fest, you haven’t been to the REAL Christmas Light Fest that’s been delighting everyone since 2014. So no matter what we’ve added this year, know that our Santa is still our Santa, the displays and light tunnels you’ve always loved are at Enchanted Springs Ranch and we’ve kicked it up quite a few notches because we love lights and holiday magic.  

Old West Christmas Light Fest brings the holidays to life with more than drive-thru light displays—though we have plenty of those! We have displays you can walk around and snap “shareworthy” photos with and share by tagging #christmaslightfest of course! Then walk through a tunnel of lights to our enchanting Old West town filled with lights, music, food and fun.

Are we trying to recreate the Old West? No. We’re just giving you an authentic Old West town sparkling with magical holiday fun. Visit our jail—but be careful if you’re on the naughty list or you might be locked up! Stop by the post office to make sure your letter to Santa makes it in time. Pop by our church to enjoy shopping with some of the fantastic vendors who make up our Mistletoe Market and don’t miss the Trading Post where you’ll find goodies to enjoy. 

Grab some grub at the Meat Market, or visit any of the chuck wagons (food trucks, because hello, food trucks didn’t exist in the 1800s!) that we feature each weekend. Beer, wine, sodas, water, hot chocolate, s’mores, sausage on a stick, tamales, pizza, sliders, tasty Mexican food, kettle corn, cotton candy … we promise you won’t leave hungry! Sit by our yule log to warm up—or grab a cold one to cool down, depending on Mother Nature’s mood. Whether it’s hot or cold out, don’t miss roasting s’mores on any of our fire pits.

We have two saloons waiting to entertain you. You’ll find Santa in the Six Gun Saloon, where you can also decorate cookies, enjoy photo cut outs and sit in Santa’s sleigh for memorable shot. It’s also where you can start on your scavenger hunt to find Santa’s Holly Jolly Herd, our crew of flying longhorns ready to carry Santa across Texas on Christmas Eve. Stop snickering! Longhorns can fly. Find our crew and win a sweet prize! And of course, there’s no charge for photos with Santa. Just keep an eye on him:  he’s been known to dance, sing and help folks decorate cookies. He’s the real deal and makes even the biggest Grinch smile.

Our other saloon hosts live music on Saturday nights and all sorts of fun. Just outside, you can enjoy our picnic pavilion with holiday movies playing nightly. You can also sit and enjoy the show as people try their hand at riding our mechanical bull. Even Santa gave it a shot, HO-HO-HO-ing the whole time! We also have a trampoline bungee jump if you want to feel what it’s like to fly like Santa’s longhorns.
