Katy Old Fashioned Christmas Festival 2016


On Saturday December 3 , 2016 an Old Fashioned Christmas Festival is being sponsored by Katy Market Days in partnership with the City of Katy. The Festival will be held from 11:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. on Avenue B in Old Town or Historic Katy as Avenue B is essentially where a many of the participating merchants stores are located or are located close by in Old Katy Texas.Santa and Mrs Claus.JPG


Above picture taken by me at this event a few years ago.  


The pageant will feature Santa Claus and 50,000 lbs. Of real snow arriving at probably around noon time. I have attended this festival in past years and the real snow was there for all to enjoy. Pictures with Santa are available for a fee.


In addition this festival features lots of delicious food available for purchase and excellent local entertainment.  Local small business will be open with numerous potential gift ideas for Christmas shoppers. Think about supporting local small business by buying Christmas gifts from these merchants.


The festivities will feature things such as arts & crafts, jewelry, antiques, entertainment, carolers, all kinds of different unique gifts, hot cocoa and coffee. No Label Brewing will also have their well known and liked Beer Garden open on the corner of 3rd and Ave. B.  The event will conclude with the lighting of the traditional Christmas Tree.




Katy Market days were established in 2001 and has been a growing endeavor ever since then. Katy Market Days is held on the third Saturday of every month between 2 ND Street and Avenue B. Most of the local vendors with shops in Old Katy participate in the monthly Katy Market Days event. Each month during any given  year, the merchants pick a new theme. I also have written in the past several previous blogs about Katy Market days.

Thank you everyone for your comments. It is raining fairly hard right now all across the area and it should last all day/night. This obviously will impact the Katy festival..
