The Bracebridge Dinner at Yosemite

America’s, if not the world’s,
premier Christmas Dinner
— The Wall Street Journal

Yosemite National Park’s Bracebridge Dinner has become a true American tradition since its inception in 1927 in the magnificent Yosemite Valley. This spectacular Christmas pageant takes place in the grand Dining Room, which is transformed into the majestic manor hall of American author Washington Irving’s legendary “Squire Bracebridge.”


A Christmas Tradition


Each December since 1927, the world-famous Hotel takes on the air of eighteenth-century England. The Dining Room, its tables aglow with candlelight, is filled with the warmth and spirit of this special time of year. The evening abounds with a profusion of food and the ringing sound of voices. The cathedral windows look out onto the beauty of Yosemite Valley, and the spirit of all things beautiful cannot help but be felt. Music, nature and peace are united in this evening, a tribute to a timeless season of joy.
