Shopping aside, Wigwam also offers a bevy of options for your appetite.

For Christmas Day, dine on holiday favorites like Litchfields from 3-7 p.m. This three-course meal offers diners a choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Or guests can fill up at ballroom buffet dinner. Set in the Wigwam Ballroom, guests will enjoy a festive spread from noon to 6 p.m. featuring Christmas favorites such as roasted sirloin of beef and pineapple and honey glazed ham.

“Because so many families choose to celebrate the holidays with us, we developed a memorable and festive menu that is a twist on the traditional,” said executive chef Lenard Rubin. “We have the basics covered—natural turkey, oven roasted pork loin, Cedar River prime rib—but we’re also whipping up dishes you wouldn’t typically expect to see on the holiday dining table, like cast iron sea bass, pan seared salmon, roasted corn and shrimp chowder, and chestnut crème brulee. It’s a special time of year, and we want our guests to enjoy memorable feasts together in the spirit of the holidays.”
