With a population of approximately 52,000 people, you may assume that Grapevine, Texas, hosts a charming, small-town holiday celebration each year. And you’d be right. The city’s holiday events do have an intimacy and warmth to them that you only find in small towns. But, as they say, everything's bigger in Texas, and the holidays are not exempt in Grapevine.
This tiny city hosts more than 1,400 Christmas events in a little more than 40 days, making it the self-proclaimed Christmas Capital of Texas. Take a ride on the North Pole Express with the Grapevine Vintage Railroad, check out the latest sculptures at ICE! at Gaylord Texan, or enjoy classic holiday movies at the Historic Palace Theatre.
Everyone and every business gets involved in this annual tradition, and it’s a wonderful place for visitors and locals to celebrate the season.
