​​​At Boys Town Nevada, there is no shortage of events being held to honor the holiday season. The Family Home Program holds multiple events throughout the months of November and December. One of the site's larger events is a decorating day at Family Homes. Community organizations, staff members and Boys Town children work together in order to prepare all the homes with decorations for the holidays.

Children from the programs are also able to participate in a Secret Santa within their homes, due to the generous donation of gift cards from Bank of America, attend dinner at PF Changs where they are given $250 worth of Nike clothing and shoes, and listen to UFC Fighters share their inspirational stories. Youth can also attend the annual Wyndham Christmas Party where they are provided dinner and presents and are also given tickets to see the Speedway Glittering Lights Drive through at the Motor Dome.

Many other events such as toy drives are sponsored by different organization. A Target registry is made for In-Home Family Services children and donors are able to purchase a toy for a child directly off of their Christmas wish list. Boys Town Nevada is opening a new Behavioral Health Clinic in January and held a toy drive to fill the toy room within the clinic. The Golden Nugget Casino generously donated enough toys to fill the entire room which resulted in Boys Town Nevada dedicating the toy room to the Golden Nugget.​
