Holidays & Special Events
Naturally, packages are available for the big three holidays. So be sure to save your appetite for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.
Thanksgiving Weekend we make sure everyone has plenty to be grateful for. You’ll find mouthwatering feasts, an abundance of energizing activities, and plenty of opportunities to relax and renew. We even transform the Tavern into a classic American turkey day living room, broadcasting ballgames and serving drinks and snacks while the smell of homemade deliciousness wafts from the kitchen. The menu for the big day always depends on the best ingredients available in the season, so take a look at our 2020 Thanksgiving Day Menu for a good idea of what to expect.
Christmastime is a week-long celebration at the Evergreen. In addition to an endless bounty of activities that are fun for all ages, every evening our restaurant serves our classic menu along with memorable holiday specials. In the Tavern eggnog and hot specialty drinks flow along with our broad assortment of wine, beer, and spirits. You’ll find fireside s’mores and hot cocoa under the stars. We truly offer something for everyone.
Besides Santa’s visit, a highlight of the holiday week is Chef Jesse’s Old World Christmas Feast. This is another sumptuous array that is partly decided based on the finest available seasonal ingredients, so here is the menu for the 2019 Christmas Dinner to give you a flavor of what is to come this year. Reserve A la Carte or bundled packages that are available Monday, December 23rd through Saturday, December 28th, 2019.
Our New Year’s Celebration combines the best of Yosemite by day and full-throttle fun through the night. To celebrate the 2020 New Year, we’ll be celebrating in Yosemite style with a live band and performers. Chef Jesse will once again prepare a memorable New Year’s Eve feast followed by a fabulous New Year’s Day breakfast to get your new year off to the perfect start.
Chef Jesse also oversees the on-site catering for Weddings, Meetings, and Retreats, with the same great care that he brings to the restaurant, Tavern, and Pool Bar. Whether your occasion calls for freshly made trail lunches, selective buffets, quick refueling stations, or a “mountain elegant” plated dinner reception, you’ll be in good hands with our on-site event expert, Tara Stetz. You’re welcome to browse some sample menus, or just go ahead and email Tara, send her a digital Request for Proposal, or call her directly at (209) 379-2373 x1516 for your personal consultation. The Evergreen comfortably accommodates parties of up to 150 guests indoors and 250 guests outdoors.
