Say howdy to Hou-Ville.

We’re all pretty much The Grinch this year, right? Be that as it may, there’s still ample time for us to salvage our Christmas spirit, especially with the Dr. Seuss-inspired Christmas Village opening up in Houston this holiday season.

Come down from your caves this December and join the light-hearted merriment of the holiday festivities in Downtown, Hou-Ville. This December, 40 Below at 520 Texas Ave. is transforming into Dr. Seuss’ landmark Christmas Village.

“Hou-Ville is a brand-new holiday experience,” the group writes on their event page. “that puts an H-Town spin on Dr. Seuss’ iconic Christmas village of ‘Whoville’, in Downtown Houston this holiday season! The new holiday experience will transform Live Nation’s 40 Below, into a real-life Houston version of ‘Whoville’ where kids and adults are transported to a life-size whimsical Holiday City.”

From now until December 23, Hou-stonians can experience the imaginative wonder of Dr. Seuss’ classic story brought to life, with giant presents, gingerbread houses, city sets, over-the-top Christmas decor, photo-ops galore, and so much more!


“From Santa’s Houston Workshop to an Astro’s-themed Gingerbread House Bakery, to a candy cane lane that leads to a wintery hot chocolate and coffee station! The holiday village also includes festive family-friendly attractions and a Hou-Ville Gift Shop, with gifts and stocking stuffers for the Grinches and Cindy Lou Who’s on your holiday list.”

Tickets to the 90-minute experience costs $15 for children and $30 for adults.

For safety purposes, Hou-Ville will be operating at 50% capacity.
