San Antonio's Christmas light venue


Elf Acres is an amazing and fun Christmas light drive thru venue located on the West side of San Antonio, just outside Loop 1604 off Potranco Rd.  We began last year in 2015 after recognizing a need to give people a place to see Christmas lights without driving to another city! And we are sure glad we did… 2015 was a fantastic year filled with tons of laughter and bright smiles for all the young at heart that came to see us!

We have hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights, displays and music. New to 2016, we have added a walk around area, hayrides, photos with Santa and concessions, like hot chocolate and kettlecorn! Come experience the difference of our beautiful 21 acre facility as you wind your way thru hundreds of trees and thousands of lights, delight in our animated displays, view our synchronized light show and enjoy Christmas music on our Elf Acres radio station! Then park your car and walk around in our beautifully lit display area, visit Santa and get some goodies to eat. Come make this your new family holiday tradition!
