Holiday Events at The Queensbury

Hotel Lobby at Christmas

There’s no place like The Queensbury for the holidays…

When the snow starts falling across downtown and the white lights are twinkling around City Park, you know the holiday season is almost upon us in Glens Falls! You also know it’s time to plan a trip or a visit to The Queensbury to soak in the festive feeling, holiday cheer and nostalgic memories that are all around.

You’ll be greeted by grand toy soldiers, Christmas trees as high as the ceilings and a roaring fireplace in our stunning lobby. Perfectly placed poinsettias and garland galore will be everywhere you turn. Returning this year will be another life-size gingerbread display that is sure to ignite holiday spirit in adults and children alike.  (Follow us on Facebook for updates on this year’s gingerbread display!)

If you ask us, the holiday season isn’t complete until you take a stroll through our magical lobby, dine in an outdoor igloo at Park 26 or have a winter cocktail in our cozy Fenimore’s Pub. All things you can do before or after all the fun and festive events taking place this month and next at The Queensbury and across Glens Falls.
