Stonewall Resort offers holiday events and activities

ROANOKE, W.Va. — Stonewall Resort is hosting a series of holiday-themed events with activities scheduled each weekend in December, running through New Year’s Day.

“We call these event and activity-filled weekends ‘The Season of Comfort and Joy’ to encourage people to celebrate this special time of the year with family or loved-ones in the cozy, amenity-filled confines of Stonewall Resort,” said André D’Amour, general manager of Stonewall Resort

The following activities will occur on the weekends of Dec. 7, and Dec. 14:

  • Breakfast with Santa in Stillwaters Restaurant on Saturday mornings
  • Culinary demonstrations on how to build a gingerbread house or holiday “mixology” on Saturdays
  • Variety of recreation opportunities, including special movie showings and Christmas craft activities
  • Christmas “Tuck-ins” by one of Santa’s elves on select Friday/Saturday evenings
  • Live, holiday musical performances in the Grand Hall with complimentary cookies, hot cocoa and warm cider
  • Brunch with Santa each Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

West Virginia native Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the 2011 winner of NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent, will perform a special holiday concert in the Stonewall Resort ballroom Saturday evening, Dec. 8.  The event is open to the public and tickets are available at www.Landaumurphyjr.com, or by calling 703-268-4218.

Stonewall Resort will host a “Not-So-Silent Night Community Holiday Party” on Friday, Dec. 14. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in white, as this will be a memorable holiday black-light party. The evening will start with a welcome reception at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a deluxe dinner in the ballroom. DJ Alex O’Neal will provide dance music. Admission is $42 per person. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 304-269-8880.

The resort’s Christmas Day Family Supper in Stillwaters Restaurant is on Dec. 25, and features traditional and nontraditional holiday favorites from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call 304-269-7400 to make reservations.

West Virginia’s premier comedy troupe, The Fearless Fools, will conduct a live comedy show on Sunday, Dec. 30, at 8 p.m. This performance will feature improvisational comedy akin to the “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” TV show. To book a reservation, contact the resort at 304-269-7400.

The resort also plans four “over-the-top” New Year’s Eve parties to help usher in 2019: one exclusive event at Lightburn’s Restaurant, a resort Ballroom Package and upgraded VIP Ballroom Package and the Stillwaters Package. Each celebration includes dinner, dancing, overnight accommodations and more. For details, visit www.StonewallResort.com.
