Christmas on Main 2023 City of Conroe

Christmas on Main is a collaboration between the City of Conroe and the Conroe Downtown Area Association to bring a family fun event to residents to kick off the “most wonderful time of the year.” In 2017, Mayor Powell asked volunteers to create an event where families could share the excitement of Christmas right after the “official” City of Conroe tree was lighted while everyone was still in the Downtown area. Each year more activities add to the event and allow the public to visit the merchant shops.

For the third year the World-Famous Clydesdale horses, sponsored by Express Employment will be in attendance and there will be a Christmas Vendor Market set up on Metcalf at Heritage Park up to Main Street.

The Conroe Downtown Area Association is appreciative of the sponsors for the 2023 Christmas on Main: The City of Conroe, The Corner Pub, Todd Yancy, Curt Maddux, Conroe Golf Cars, Margie Taylor of Taylorized PR, Duke W. Coon-President of Hadco International, Harry Hardman, Ryan Hutson, Bleyl Engineering, Brownlee Jewelers, Dragon Bowl C, Taste the Asian, Kof Num Pang, and Quest Engineering. Without their assistance this event would not have been possible.
