Dickens on Main


In 1999, a group of shopkeepers in downtown Boerne united to create a Christmas event that would bring the community together, promote local shopping and celebrate the holidays with old-fashioned traditions and favorites. Now, more than 20 years later, Dickens on Main has become the Hill Country’s premiere holiday event, transforming the Hill Country Mile into a vintage Christmas wonderland, complete with five villages, beautiful holiday lights, snow along Main street and an entertainment lineup that always delights the whole family. The two-day event is held each Thanksgiving weekend and features holiday favorites such as SNOW along Main Street, ice sculpting shows, live music and theatrical performances, kids’ crafts and more that never fails to entertain revelers of all ages. Food trucks and unique vendors of all types are spread throughout the venue, and guests are always surprised and delighted with street performers such as carolers, jugglers and musicians along Main Street.
