Christmas in God's Country!

A citywide holiday celebration event.

Christmas in Gods Country is our annual holiday shopping event. Vendors set up booths in downtown Hondo to sell artisan crafts, homemade beauty supplies, snacks and fried food, and a wide array of handmade items that make amazing Christmas gifts. These booths surround the Hondo Courthouse for 2 days making it a great holiday weekend event for both shoppers and vendors.


With about 80 vendor spots this event is host to a wide array of handcrafted items, yard furniture, and snack, as well as about 25+ years of this event being held annually, its something all of Hondo is familiar with, and something we all look forward to each year. Bring the kids out to take a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus or one of the miniature donkeys trotting around. Treat them to some holiday snacks. Get yourself a nice gift. And do this all while supporting local businesses and vendors.

This event brings locals out into the town, while also bringing in 100's of people from out of town to enjoy the weekend of fun. Come join us in Downtown Hondo for this decades old tradition.
