Each December, The Majestic Yosemite Hotel provides the perfect backdrop for The Bracebridge Dinner at Yosemite, a unique American holiday tradition. It’s a captivating blend of world-class musical theatre and cuisine, inspired by Washington Irving’s tales about a 17th-century Old English Yuletide, all set in the majestic natural beauty of Yosemite in winter. 

Since it began in 1927, The Bracebridge Dinner at Yosemite has earned an unrivaled reputation for reconnecting each guest with the spirit and enchantment of the holidays.  As a result, it is recognized as one of the most sought-after holiday events in the U.S. In 2006, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Bracebridge is, without much doubt, the country's, if not the world's, premier Christmas dinner.”
