By Aubrey Nettles, Economic Development & Tourism Marketing Manager

Howdy Holly-Days at Northgate offers appealing holiday treats for every taste with shopping, entertainment, and a one-of-a-kind “dine-around” experience with merchants. We cordially invite you to the third annual seasonal event from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Here are four ways Howdy Holly-Days at Northgate can help lift your holiday spirits:

1. Sensational Shopping

The Northgate Promenade, Boyett Street, and College Main will be lined with more than 60 vendors displaying various goods and products. The offerings will include baked goods, artwork, jewelry, home décor, skincare items, apparel, accessories, woodwork, wreaths, candles, pottery, dog treats, and much more. 

In addition, you can also purchase the 2022 Christmas in College Station tree ornament from Aggieland Outfitters for $24.99. The decoration is also available at Aggieland Outfitters stores throughout the holidays.

2. Spirited Entertainment

The family-friendly event features live music, a bounce house, and face painting for the kids. You can also capture unforgettable memories by taking photos with Santa and in the giant inflatable snow globe. Early forecasts predict a 100% chance of snow – artificial, anyway!

3. Savory Sips and Snacks

A dozen merchants are participating in Sips & Snacks, where you can sample food and drink items from the best Northgate offers. Sips & Snacks tickets are $15 and can be purchased online. Only 150 tickets are available on event day, so get your tickets today to reserve your spot!

4. FREE Parking!

Making the event even sweeter, parking at the Northgate surface lot and garage is free from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Visit College Station offers our sincere thanks to Northgate merchants for participating in this marquee event as an indispensable part of our annual Christmas in College Station festivities!
