This year calls for some extra holiday cheer! While some festive traditions have to look different this holiday season, Bastrop is still offering plenty of ways to keep the spirits bright with a variety of socially distant celebrations. Holidays are truly memorable in Bastrop, and here are some ways to enjoy them this year.

Must-See Lost Pines Christmas

Bastrop’s favorite holiday celebration is back! From an old-fashioned Main Street Christmas and small-town traditions to a dazzling night-time lights display, a night at the opera and even haunted houses, Lost Pines Christmas offers a full calendar of events during December where you can get festive without going far.

Shop Locally 

Find one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your list at the 2nd Annual Christmas Market on Dec. 19. The event will benefit Silver Santa, an organization serving low-income senior citizens, first responders, military personnel and persons with disabilities. Food and drinks will also be available at the bazaar, so you can make a day out of it while supporting the community.

Your Choice of a Holiday Movie

No holiday season is complete without a heartwarming holiday film. If you miss the atmosphere of a movie theater, Film Alley offers private theater rentals where you can bring your favorite holiday classic and enjoy a fun night out with your household.

Holiday Feast

You deserve a true holiday break, so delegate preparing a spread to Bastrop’s restaurants. Southside Market & BBQ has a holiday menu featuring turkey and pork feasts. For a seasonal drink, be sure to stop at Neighbor’s Kitchen & Yard as they’re pouring Hot Spiked Apple Cider and The Crinch cocktail with homemade Rosemary infused simple syrup. For all your Christmas pie needs, Maxine’s Café & Bakery has you covered!


Curl Up by the Fire

We might not have a snowy winter in Texas, but curling up by the fire pit at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa feels cozy no matter what the temperature is outside. Another place to enjoy seclusion with a bonfire is with a luxury yurt at The Reserve at Greenleaf. A must-do winter activity!
