Christmas at Old Fort Concho

December 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am - December 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm CST

Buffalo Soldiers, Camp fire stories, Frontier Army, Cannons, Horses, Kid crafts, activities and much more

Kick off the holiday season with the Buffalo Soldiers and by visiting Fort Concho’s largest annual event. Held during the first full weekend in December, Christmas at Old Fort Concho transforms the fort’s forty acres and twenty-four buildings into a winter wonderland filled with shopping, entertainment, food, displays, living history, children’s workshops, and of course, a visit from Santa.

Each day at Fort Concho visitors can experience the Winter Rendezvous, campsites with hundreds of re-enactors and period traders who bring the 1800s alive. During daylight hours the many troops on the Parade Ground will drill, ride, and shoot their weapons. The artillery demonstrations (blanks-of course) will definitely catch your attention! Inside the fort’s many original buildings, merchants and artisans from across Texas and the Southwest offer many items to start your Christmas shopping. A Food Court will offer various food options; strolling musicians and staged musical activity will keep the grounds lively, and the Children’s Areas will provide many crafts and activities free for all youngsters.

Local schools will visit the fort Friday December 7. To sign your school up for a visit please contact Fort Concho directly.
