Sights & Sounds of Christmas!
We’re excited to welcome you to one of the most anticipated holiday events in San Marcos – The Sights & Sounds of Christmas! Every year this family-friendly Christmas festival brings the holiday spirit to San Martians and visitors from across Texas and beyond.

There are plenty of events for families with children of all ages. A favorite attraction for younger visitors is the furry friends at the festival petting zoo. Children also have the opportunity to meet Santa at the festival and even take a picture with him.
Every year this holiday event features popular carnival rides for all ages. Kids will enjoy spinning, flying, and racing along on rides throughout the park. A full sized ferris wheel gives riders a bird’s eye view of the thousands of sparkling Christmas lights that decorate the park.
Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Come hungry and try the delicious food that appears at the festival. From full plates to funnel cakes, a tasty array of festival food can be found at the various stalls that line the park every day of the event. Look for vendors offering hot chocolate and apple cider while you’re there! New for 2021, look out for the adults-only “Merry Lounge” right next to the carnival.
Sights & Sounds works with many community organizations to make the event better every year. Many groups even participate in the festival, such as local vendors and scout troops. A live nativity put on by dedicated community members is a highly anticipated attraction each year.
