Staff Letter

Hello, and welcome to Eureka Springs! Any time is a good time to visit our quaint little town but it's especially festive during the holiday season. Rest assured, we celebrate the holidays from November to January. There's always something to do during the holidays, whether you like to shop, hike or relax at the spa.

We have several family friendly events during the holidays, including Santa in the Park, Santa's Brunch at the Crescent Hotel and the annual Christmas Parade of Lights. There's something so special about watching all the floats during the Christmas Parade of Lights. It's a fantastic way to kick off the season and welcome visitors like you to become part of our community, even if for one night.

Of course, our favorite events are those that give back. The Silver Tea benefits a local nonprofit and has for 53 years now. It's another event that helps us kick off the holidays, held on the first Thursday of December every year. After the Silver Tea, be sure to check out the Christmas Forest behind the Crescent Hotel where you can peruse uniquely decorated trees and vote for a nonprofit close to your heart.

Whatever you do in Eureka Springs, we hope you feel the spirit of the holidays and the love we all share this time of the year!
