Beginning November 27, 2008 through January 1, 2009 guests of the resort, as well as non-resort guests, can create lasting holiday memories with activities such as, old-fashioned horse-drawn sleigh rides, breakfast with Santa, family Christmas concerts, and a grand illumination as only Sunriver Resort can offer.

Teddy Bear Tea
Every Saturday, parents and children can come for tea with their favorite teddy bear in tow. Enjoy finger sandwiches, fine teas and holiday cheer.
