The start of winter activities in Stowe is heralded in with some quintessential quaint charm on the first Saturday in December!
Welcome to Winter! Although the actual season does not begin until December 21, like many other places across the country, the start of winter activities in Stowe begins as soon as the holiday of “Giving Thanks” is done. When December rolls around on the calendar, our historic area of Stowe, Vermont gets into the season with a variety of events to kick off the spirit of holidays that all fall on the first weekend in the month. Voted as one of the Top 10 Winter Events by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, our Traditional Christmas always brings many visitors to our Village for a variety of Stowe activities that center on the holiday. Tree lightings, decorations, wagon rides, each and every aspect of this weekend is brimming with festive cheer.
During this weekend, on Saturday, December 7, 2019, one of the lesser-known parts of this celebration is the Welcome to Winter in Stowe. Taking place at the David Gale Recreation Center from 12 PM – 3 PM, swing on by to partake in some holiday craft making, festive games, and all of the free hot cocoa and cookies you desire. This is a perfect event for the entire family to spend some time together in Stowe in the winter, including a round-trip hay wagon ride to Stowe Mercantile to visit Santa!
There are so many fun events that take place during the Traditional Christmas in Stowe that you may wish to spend the entire weekend getting in the spirit of the season with us. If you are coming to Stowe for the Winter, stay in the home-away-from-home comfort of The Green Mountain Inn. Located right in the heart of downtown Stowe, our inherent traditional charm is a perfect complement to the festivities around us, many of which can be found right outside of our doors!
