The Christmas in Goliad event was created as a fundraiser for the Goliad County Historical Commission in 1983. The two day celebration occurs every year on the first Friday and Saturday of December. Attractions include arts and craft booths, food vendors, music and a lighted parade on Friday evening. Saturday’s events include vendor booths, food and entertainment. Highlights include Miss Ruby’s Corral, where authors sign and sell their books and Santa’s arrival on a longhorn steer. On Saturday evening choral groups and Las Posadas inspire visitors with the Christmas spirit. All proceeds from Christmas In Goliad are used by the Goliad County Historical Commission to promote and preserve Goliad History and for operating costs of the Goliad Markethouse Museum.
