Holiday Preview at French Lick Resort

Blogger: Elle Humbert

The most magical time of year is once again just around the corner and what better place to ring it in than the enchanting French Lick Resort! With two resort properties, both with exceptional holiday décor and activities, you are sure to be amazed and entertained. Whether you’re in town for the Eighth Annual Handmade Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair, one of two immaculate tree lightings, stopping by for some hot chocolate with Santa or one of our other unique offerings, French Lick Resort is the place to be for the holidays with your family, friends and loved ones.

There are bountiful opportunities for activities of all ages this time of year at the resort—take the family to watch a choir perform on Saturday afternoons, stroll the Promenade Shoppes with your girlfriends to check some holiday shopping off your list, take pictures with Santa at our incredible 7-foot tall gingerbread house and take the kids to cookie decorating and story time with Mrs. Claus— our newest annual holiday activity. You can even snuggle down and catch a classic holiday movie after reading and cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus most evenings throughout the week. If you are looking for a more intimate setting to end your day, check out our Late Night Jazz Club in the West Baden Library to hear some classic holiday jazz after a busy day of visiting the elaborate properties.

In town for just a day trip? No problem. We have an array of possibilities to fit your schedule and all of our activities do not require an overnight stay. Depending on the day you decide to visit the resort, a variety of options are available to you. You can find the full schedule of events at
