Christmas in the Big Thicket

Christmas in The Big Thicket Festival  is a fundraiser for the Silsbee Public Library.

The festival normally takes place the 1st Saturday in December in downtown Silsbee. Vendors set up  arts and crafts booths, food booths and live entertainment that attracts people from all around our area.  

At the close of the festival, people make there way to main street (5th Street) to watch the beautiful Lighted Christmas Parade sponsored by The Silsbee Chamber of Commerce. First United Methodist Church has the perfect location to park and view the parade. Make plans to join us for an evening of fun!
