Winterfest 2021

This new event will take place at Gaylord Rockies, Gaylord Opryland and Gaylord Texan. The aptly-named Winterfest offers guests a wide array of winter-themed indoor and outdoor activities and special live entertainment embracing the very best of the season.

At Gaylord Rockies, Guests are also invited to take part in snow tubing, ice skating and outdoor ice bumper cars at Glacier Point, as well as Colorado-themed scavenger hunts, and the Snow Ball, a silent disco hosted by Jack Frost himself. Adults can also take advantage of winter rejuvenation at Relâche Spa for seasonal treatments. Visitors can catch the magic of the winter-themed LIGHT! exhibit, an artistic take on the wind inspired by the high gusts across the Mile-High City and their effect on the landscapes of Colorado. Because Mother Nature is the designer, each installation is constantly evolving, never appearing the same way twice.

Gaylord Opryland continues to welcome guests to its Pinetop outdoor village, where there is  plenty of space for enjoying oversized light displays, live performances, tubing, ice skating and lessons, ice bumper cars, winter warmer beverages and an all-new, live Fire & Ice Skating Show featuring champion skaters, big jumps, fast spins and awe-inspiring throws and lifts. Guests can travel down the scenic indoor river on the Winter Riverboat Ride and navigate the resort for clues to earn a special prize during Jack Frost’s Frigid Finds Scavenger Hunt. Guests already longing for warmer weather can take advantage of the SoundWaves Experience Package, offering a one-night stay plus wristbands to enjoy the 84-degree, indoor aquatic experience.
