All Day

Don’t miss out on holiday celebrations at the Wawona Hotel this season! There is something exciting going on every single day between the tree lighting ceremony on December 13, and the New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Sign up for one of the limited spaces in the Gingerbread House Competition (Thursday, December 19th)
  • Enjoy Tom Bopp’s fun mixture of songs and stories each Tuesday-Saturday (except for December 25), and see why families plan their visits around his performances.
  • Create a Christmas ornament to hang on a special tree in the hotel.
  • Decorate your own Christmas cookies, and then enjoy them with hot beverages in the main lodge.
  • Celebrate with a special meal in the Wawona Hotel Dining Room for Christmas.
  • Join in the New Year’s Eve celebration – dinner and dancing with live music from Wild Hare.
