Your state parks are dressed up in their holiday finest with wreaths, lights, luminaries and more. See all events on the holiday calendar, or pick up a brochure at your nearest state park or Texas Travel Information Center.

Enjoy a candlelit tour, take a jolly walk with Santa, or spend your solstice outdoors in nature. Try your hand at a craft project, taste a delicious holiday cookie, learn to pull taffy, or demo some Dutch oven cooking. The list goes on!
