We’ve made a list, and checked it twice! Here are some amazing things to DO this holiday season in Downtown Fort Worth. For our full event calendar, click here


Stroll our city sidewalks and enjoy the sights! Many buildings will dress up in holiday style, and of course, you can't miss the Fort Worth Community Christmas Tree in Sundance Square Plaza. This year's 65-foot Norway Spruce evergreen has arrived from Michigan and is adorned with ornaments painted by local artists. 

Interact with the “Singing Trees” in Burnett Park

Experience this interactive light installation in Burnett Park! Lights in the trees illuminate and change colors as it reacts to nearby sounds. Make the trees "sing" with light as you sing, clap, talk, and play instruments. Come on down and let 'em hear you! Learn more here.

Join us for a free Cliburn in the Community performance
Due to current weather conditions, tonight's Cliburn in the Community, Polar Express concert under the Singing Trees in Burnett Park has been canceled.

Catch a movie under the stars (or in the theater)!

Burnett Park: Pop some popcorn, grab a blanket and a chair, and head to Burnett Park on December 2 for a free showing of ELF in the park! - insider tip - arrive early for a photo with Santa!! 5:30-7:00 PM Learn more here. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." – Buddy
