Celebrate the Season with Holiday Events in Bryan

As the holiday season nears, the Bryan-College Station area has plenty of holiday and family-friendly events to keep everyone in a festive spirit. Bryan hosts a variety of activities this year including holiday tree lighting, sledding on snow, learning to make your perfect holiday treats and desserts, and even watching the Nutcracker ballet. There are two holiday parades and Holiday Magic is a perfect time to get a picture taken with Santa while enjoying some hot chocolate and cookies. To kick off the holidays, head to downtown Bryan for the annual Lights On! celebration to see the lighting of the tree in Gloria Stephan Sale Park and make sure to add the Wine and Wassail Walk to your must-do list for shopping on Small Business Saturday. Learn more about each of our events below!
