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 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… our first 4 years were fantastic and filled with tons of laughter and bright smiles for all the young at heart that came to see us!

Get ready to experience the magic of the holiday season as you wind your way thru 15 acres full of hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights, delight in our animated displays and sing along to our very own Elf Acres radio station!  Then park your car and enjoy our lit up walk around area with a synchronized light show, have your kids photo taken with Santa and enjoy our yummy funnel cakes, kettlecorn, hot chocolate and more! Come make this your new family holiday tradition!
