Holiday Attractions in Dallas 2017

It's that time of year - the weather is cooling down, kitchens smell of warm spices and ciders, and the great people of Dallas get together searching for fun things to do. If you're in need of some fun Holiday plans, check out our list.


Vitruvian Lights

Addison is a fantastic Dallas suburb, known for hosting some of the most incredible events North Texas has to offer. Virtuvian Park is no exception - with a kick-off lighting ceremony on November 25th, the season is merry and quite bright with a breathtaking display of twinkling lights.


Dallas Symphony Orchestra - Christmas Pops

Every year, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra hosts outstanding Christmas events. Conducted by the acclaimed Lawrence Loh, this year's orchestration of seasonal favorites is not to be missed!


Holiday at the Arboretum

In East-Dallas you will find the Arboretum, which features winding pathways through twinkling lights, large displays of the "12 days of Christmas" tales, and (so we've heard), Santa himself might even make an appearance. If you haven't been to Holiday at the Arboretum yet, you're certainly missing out!


The Trains at NorthPark

The Trains at NorthPark has been a Dallas tradition for 30 years, benefiting Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD). The Trains have raised more than $13 million for RMHD since the first exhibit in 1987, and through those funds more than 37,000 families have been served across the Metroplex.


Christmas Capital of Texas®

Just a short skip away from Dallas you will find the charming town of Grapevine, TX. As the self-proclaimed "Christmas Capital of Texas®," the festivities and attractions hosted there are not to be missed. Some of our favorites include ICE! at the Gaylord Texan, with an astounding display of hand-carved ice sculptures, and the incredible display of lights found throughout the square.


The Nutcracker

No holiday season would be complete, without the Texas Ballet Theater's performance of The Nutcracker. According to the Dallas Morning News,

“Mr. Stevenson’s Nutcracker takes the magical impossibilities of a Christmas dream and … makes them beautifully, tantalizingly real.”

Temple Emanu-El Choir Northpark Concert

The Magnificent Temple Emanu-El Choir will be performing their annual Chanukah concert, which also includes the Zamarim Youth Singers at Northpark. Cantor Richard Cohn will also be a part of this special group where you will hear wonderful songs celebrating this fantastic tradition.
