Shop Special Events

November offers several special events just for shopping so you can be sure to cross everyone off your holiday gift list. Hunt for treasures at Fredericksburg Trade Days, and come back for more during the Fredericksburg Trade Days Holiday Encore event the weekend after Thanksgiving. Or shop the Gillespie County Historical Society's Holiday Market and The Peddler Show for unique gifts, holiday items and more. 

Can’t make it to a special shopping event? No worries! Take time to explore more than 150 shops, boutiques and art galleries on or near Main Street all season long.

Savor Texas Wine Country
