by: Editor on 12/10/2017

 

The annual tree lighting ceremony and Santa Visit kicks off December on the 1st at 5 p.m. Head to Canyon Breeze Plaza for holiday refreshments, free local entertainment and to snag a photo with Santa. The next day, have breakfast with the big man at the Sedona Hub located at Posse Grounds Park. The free breakfast includes pancakes, arts and crafts for the little ones, and another chance for a Santa photo op.

A tradition for many is the annual Nutcracker performance by the Phoenix Ballet. Snag your tickets early for the first weekend in December. The Sedona Performing Arts Center is a gorgeous venue, and the production showcases some fantastic costumes and award-winning dancers. You won’t want to miss the Festival of Lights, with over 6,000 luminaries which visitors are welcomed to help light up the Tlaquepaque courtyards while carolers and choirs perform This event takes place during the first weekend in December.

The Magic of the Season

Join the Holiday Sweet Stroll in mid-December, where carolers perform in the late afternoon while you stroll the shops for specials and deals. The boutiques stay open until 7 p.m. and offer a variety of holiday goodies and giveaways. It’s where the best shops in Sedona make magic happen, right in time for holiday gift giving.

For New Year’s Eve, many restaurants and bars in Sedona offer prix fixe menus, champagne toasts and unique dinners. Start planning which festivities you’ll join this year and make the most of December in Sedona.

Spooky Sedona Halloween

by: Editor on 10/28/2017

 

You’ll find a peppering of Halloween festivities throughout Sedona, but nearby Jerome is where the community really goes all out. Thanks to the rich Mexican history and population, Dia de los Muertos is just as popular (if not more so!) than Halloween, which means visitors can enjoy a variety of historical and cultural happenings into November. Try the Jerome Grand Hotel for their epic Halloween party and the Asylum restaurant for some of the best décor in Arizona. Wandering the halls of this haunted hotel as you party enough to wake the dead is a real scream.

Traditional American Halloweens in Sedona is largely retail, with stores, malls and shops offering the option for kids but almost nobody goes door to door. Costumes are encouraged, the shopkeepers deck out their spaces, and the Tlaquepaque shopping village makes an impressive homage for Day of the Dead.

A Hauntingly Good Time

Jerome’s famous Spook Hall ball happens the Saturday before Halloween, giving you plenty of time to recover before Asylum’s event on the big night. However, in both Sedona and Jerome a number of restaurants and tourist attractions are decorated throughout October.

Those who are looking for a massive Halloween happening might trek to Phoenix, though at nearly two hours away it’s solely for the extremely committed. Instead, take advantage of the smaller, intimate and charming events in Sedona and Jerome. You’ll be in for a spooktacular good time!

 

Thanksgiving Festivities in Sedona

Planning to be in Sedona during the holidays? You’re in luck, because some of the best Thanksgiving menus can be found in this gorgeous town. Rene is renowned for fabulous Thanksgiving feasts, including one that features a four-course meal, and an eclectically designed menu with strong French persuasions. The Heartline Cafe is another favorite and offers a multi-course meal featuring holiday staples along with regional favorites.

Try Dahl & Di Luca Ristorante Italiano for a twist on the holiday. The owners spice things up this time of year offering Italian, American, and fusion menus for the big weekend. Reds is a favorite of locals, offering traditional fare and plenty of seating during one of the busiest days of the year.
