Holidays at the Dallas Arboretum are Bigger and Better Than Ever for 2021!

Holidays at the Dallas Arboretum are a special, magical time!  Come during the day to see the magnificent exhibits, but the 12 Days at Night are truly incredible!  Named as the Texas’ Best Holiday Event by Southern Living, the 12 Days of Christmas and Holidays in the Arboretum run from November 10 – December 31st, with the new Christmas Village opening on November 18th!

Each of the 12 gazebos corresponds to one of the verses of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Christmas in the Arboretum

During Christmas, the Arboretum displays 12 magical gazebos, each displaying a scene from the Christmas carol, The 12 Days of Christmas.

The DeGoyer House also has a special presentation of a collection of nativity scenes from around the world.  

On select days, the gardens offer live music, presentations, visits with Santa and more!

A Few More Tips:

Daytime prices do not change, but evening prices do. Sun – Tue. is the least expensive. Check the calendar for events before you purchase your ticket, as some events do not happen nightly.


Each night you will find music being played in the garden!
