Sometimes our National Parks and protected lands mean a wholehearted embracing of the rough and tumble of the outdoors; camping, tiny stoves, eating canned beans, bugs. But sometimes we want a little more—and when that happens, Yosemite is there for you.
If you happen to be lucky enough to be in Yosemite near the holiday season, you can join in on the annual Old English Yuletide celebration that is the Bracebridge Dinner. This massive production includes over 100 cast members who every year create a dinner unlike any other. Dress is formal and the evening is filled with incredible pageantry and, of course, delicious food.
For wine lovers, November and December in Yosemite brings with it the Grand Grape Celebration, a wine tasting and 5-course winemakers dinner held at The Majestic Yosemite Hotel. Included is a chance to chat with local California vintners and a four wine taste session.
On the foodie side, Taste of Yosemite brings together some of America’s most renowned chefs to The Majestic Yosemite Lodge for a unique and unforgettable culinary event. Cooking demonstrations, a mix and mingle reception with the chefs, and a delicious 5-course meal prepared by a visiting chef awaits you.
