“Step back into History!”

There is a little bit of everything at Fort Concho; My all time favorite is Christmas at Old Fort Concho! Venders from across the state come with their rustic goods, Pancakes for breakfast to help support local charities, cannons blasting, vintage calvery marching... Who wouldn't have fun?! Aside from cookie decorating compotitions and art exhibits, one might find refuge in an old barrack or captain quarters and check out artifacts from long ago. Local historians and interested San Angeloans play the role of tour guide and oral historians to onlookers searching for a history long since forgotten.

I grew up thinking forts were big and surrounded by wooden palisades. Living in San Angelo I learned that there was another side of the old west that didn't make it into many movies. Historic Fort Concho shows how the old west was throughout much of west Texas. If you are lucky to be in San Angelo for Christmas in Old Fort Concho you get an extra bonus. This was a must do while my family lived here.

The restored buildings and grounds of Ft. Concho are some of the best maintained historical sites in the country. Guided tours with very knowledgeable staff members or walk and look tours are available. The annual "Christmas at Old Ft. Concho" program ", the first weekend in December, features all types of frontier activities as they would have been in the late 1800's. Any time of the year is a good time to visit Ft. Concho, but the Christmas activities are the most rewarding.
