By Chip Chandler — Digital Content Producer

Step into Christmas with this comprehensive roundup of holiday events!

A few notes: 

  • Click the event title for more information (where available).
  • This compiles Christmas and winter holiday events only. For other events, check our weekly roundups.
  • Several Amarillo neighborhoods also offer optimal Christmas light viewing, including Gainsborough Road in the Belmar neighborhood, Wolflin, Sleepy Hollow, The Colonies and elsewhere. Tours are informal — meaning, just drive through the neighborhoods on your own after dark
  • I've included special events at churches, but not regular Christmas services.
  • All listings are subject to change.
