Can't-Miss Winter Events:

This year's event features a visit from Santa, live music, children's craft projects, train rides, Oregon Observatory telescope viewing, face painting, petting zoo, huggable characters, fireworks and more.
  • 5K Turkey Trot Fun Run (Friday, November 23, 10am) - Maybe you feasted a little too much on Thanksgiving? No worries. You can work it off on the day after during this 5K, proceeds of which go to NeighborImpact, a local nonprofit. Wear a costume for added fun and prizes – you have a turkey costume, don’t you? Sign up here!
  • Holiday Marketplace (Friday and Saturday, November 23 - 24, 10am - 4pm) - Bring your “nice” list to the Holiday Marketplace and get your holiday shopping done early. Here, you’ll browse goods created by local and regional artists, including pottery, jewelry, fine arts, textiles, metalwork, woodworking, soaps and lotions and more.

Eat, Drink & Be Merry
There’s no shortage of great food and drink at Sunriver year-round. But things get kicked up a notch during the holidays. During Thanksgiving, leave the cooking to us and enjoy a bountiful buffet in the Great Hall, a plated feast at Carson’s American Kitchen or a classic turkey dinner at the Grille at Crosswater. Later over the Thanksgiving weekend, sit down with Santa himself for a hearty brunch at Carson’s – watch out, Mr. Claus has an appetite! When December 25th rolls around, eat like royalty during spectacular Christmas Dinners in the Great Hall, Carson’s or the Grille at Crosswater. And for New Year’s Eve, celebrate with Sunriver, whether you’re dancing the night away during a rocking party or enjoying an elegant meal at the Grille at Crosswater.

'Tis the Season for Family-Friendly Holiday Fun

  • Santa's Workshop: Why should the elves get to have all the fun? Santa’s Workshop lets you craft your very own stocking stuffers, from fused-glass ornaments to hand-painted ceramic mugs.
  • Gingerbread Junction: Sunriver’s annual Gingerbread Junction sees some truly amazing gingerbread creations being built in the resort’s Abbot Room – and you and your kids can get in on the action.
  • Sleigh Rides: The ultimate winter adventure? Sunriver’s daily sleigh rides in December will take your family dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh.
  • Elf Tuck-Ins: There’s no better way to end a magical winter day at Sunriver than with an Elf Tuck-In. On select nights throughout the holiday season, one of Santa’s helpers will read your kids a beloved Christmas story.
