It’s that wonderful time of year here at the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site; the 49th Annual LBJ Tree Lighting will be Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018 at 6 p.m.

President and Mrs. Johnson started this tradition 49 years ago. Experience the heritage of the Texas Hill Country at this event, and continue the legacy of Lyndon B. Johnson and his family.

Come out to the park and enjoy the park's transition from daytime to nighttime in festive holiday fare. Lights, bows, luminaries, garland and wreaths adorn the buildings in the park. Even the nature trails are dressed in their holiday best. The evening is planned full with activities on the state park grounds that will put the entire family in the holiday spirit.

In the spirit of the season, this is a free event, but donations to the park are always welcomed. This family holiday event is outside, so dress for the weather and bring a flashlight.

Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site is located 14 miles west of Johnson City and 13 miles east of Fredericksburg off Highway 290 in Stonewall at 199 Park Road 52.  We recommend touring the Living History Farm or Park Exhibit Hall before 3 p.m. that Sunday, as both will temporarily close to prepare for the evening festivities.
