Holidays at the beach! What could be better than that? We sure do love the holidays here in Seabrook. Spending time with your crew, watching movies, and making food is really what it’s all about. We make staying in Seabrook during the holidays an immersive experience. Step right out your door and you are transported into a winter wonderland, or better yet, a Washington coast wonderland.
Around here we like to call all of our celebrations Jolly Days! This is a month-long event where we have different activities and experiences every Saturday through December 17th leading up to Christmas. To kick it off we start with one of our oldest Seabrook traditions which is the tree lighting!
Holiday Tree Lighting
Head over to Meriweather Square where you will see our tall tree that stands year-round. This tree is a symbol and dedication to town co-founder Casey Roloff’s father Larry Roloff, therefore earning the name “Dad’s Christmas Tree”. In 2006, the Seabrook team dedicated this tree to the Roloff family as a symbol of all that they had accomplished and as a thank-you for building this amazing community.
Next to the tree is a plaque that explains that Casey always wanted a place to raise his family where they could spend special times together.
This tree symbolizes his accomplishment of that and how proud the Seabrook team is and his father would be! We are also so grateful and proud of the Roloff family and all that they have done in creating and growing our magical and special town.
The tree lighting takes place on November 25th at 6:00 PM where local singer Ben Fagerstedt will perform and lead the town in carols!
Shop For The Holidays During Small Business Saturdays
From 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM, support local businesses while also finding the perfect holiday gifts for the whole family! From toys, apparel, sweets, wine, home decor, Seabrook swag, and much more, your festive holiday shopping experience is waiting in Washington’s Beach Town.
Snow At The Beach?
Want snow at the beach? Yes, that’s right we have snow here at the beach at 5:00 PM on November 26th, December 3rd, and December 10th. The last snow drop on December 17th is at 6:00 PM during the holiday parade. Walk through Market Street and the town center where everything will be lit up and covered with snow from our snow drop. Bring your kids and friends to experience the nostalgic feeling of a true Christmas just like the old days.
Holiday Parade Through Town
Here in Seabrook, we love to host parades to commemorate the holidays! We recently had our Halloween parade where we were able to see every costume you can imagine! For the holidays, our parade will begin at 6:00 on December 17th where there will be decorated floats, festive music, and everything to make the Town Center a magical place.
The Belfry Holiday Market
Looking for a place to get your crew meaningful gifts? This year The Belfry is hosting Saturday Holiday Markets starting November 26th through December 17th from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM. These markets will be much like our Saturday Markets during the summer. Local vendors and small businesses will be there with a variety of items. In addition to the markets, there will also be the option to take photos with Santa! These photos with Santa are not just a picture, but instead an immersive experience for your kids! They will have the opportunity to chat with Santa and create a memory to last a lifetime. The Belfry is also helping to make your holiday experience even more memorable by offering horse and carriage rides around town!
Winter Glass Float Find
The Winter Glass Float Find tradition is back and is as exciting as ever! Beginning on November 24th and going through January 1st, enjoy exploring the outdoors and beautiful town. Floats are hidden around Seabrook daily with clues to their location posted outside of the Guest Services Lobby at 301 Front Street and also on our social media stories. If you find one of the beautifully crafted and colorful floats, it’s yours to keep!
Stay With Us At The Beach!
Each year we try to create an even more memorable and amazing experience than the year before. We really believe that staying in Seabrook during the holidays is the only way to truly experience all the beauty of our beach town! We are so excited for Jolly Days this year and can’t wait to see you all at the beach!
