About this event
Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center announced the return of Christmas on the Potomac — the Washington, D.C., region’s largest Christmas celebration. Anchored by the new, immersive “I Love Christmas Movies” experience featuring detailed scenes from holiday classics, this popular event, which is open to the public, will delight guests November 26 through December 31.
A dozen different experiences taking place throughout the resort, and holiday lights at every turn, will make it easy to get into the holiday spirit. Snow is guaranteed to be in the forecast at the new Snow Factory where visitors will build and toss real snowballs or take a thrilling Ice Tubing slide down the frozen hill. Outside, guests can enjoy river views and twinkling lights while Ice Skating or taking a spin in the new Ice Bumper Cars. From the beloved Peanuts classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Merry Snoopy Christmas Scavenger Hunt promises to keep the fun moving as sleuths explore the 19-story atrium in search of hidden holiday clues. Storytime with Mrs. Claus’ Christmas Traditions is going to be a perfect respite to enjoy T’was the Night Before Christmas and share Santa’s favorite, Christmas cookies.
