At the Big Red Barn this year, you’ll find that Christmas trees are decorated in the tradition of the diverse cultures in Texas and a variety of Nativity scenes are displayed inside the Red Barn. Visitors can enjoy Christmas music and other live entertainment performed while they enjoy barbecue-on-a-bun, hot chocolate, cobbler & cookies, ice cream or other tasty items.

The country village comes alive with decorations, activities, demonstrations, and treats for visitors to enjoy! Roast marshmallows on a stick over an open campfire and take the kids on a hayride or train ride. Or, simply stroll through the village as you work off the sugar cookies that you’ve sampled at the Big Red Barn’s farmhouse.

There will be arts & crafts in the One Room School House as well as homemade sausage to sample and observe how it was made. Most of all though, savor the warmth, hospitality, and tradition inside the nostalgic village. Bring your coats and bundle up though because meteorologists are predicting cold temperatures for this weekend!

The Big Red Barn is located on a working farm in Guadalupe County on land that has been farmed since the 1850’s. The land has been donated by Wilfred and Betty Bartoskewitz who are fifth generation farmers. The Big Red Barn, under the direction of the Texas Agricultural Education and Heritage Center helps to educate the public – especially young people – about agriculture and our heritage. The Center has displays and events to help create the farming and ranching experience.
