Saratoga Springs Community Annual Holiday Dinner & Celebration

Come back home!

We're back after nearly three years of missing our longstanding holiday tradition, welcoming old friends and Saratoga Springs family for our annual Holiday Dinner and Celebration. We would love to see of our old friends again. Spread the word!

Come for the food!

Saratoga Springs will provide turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. You are invited to bring your favorite pot luck dish to share.

Come for the people!

Many people from our various groups come to celebrate together. See old friends and meet some new ones. Warm up in our hot tub, sleep comfortably in our beds, and enjoy the peace and quiet while spending time with friends.


Arrive any time after 12 noon on Dec 24. Dinner is at 6 pm. Leave by 12 noon on Dec 25 (if you’re staying overnight.)  

How much should I donate?

Just the meal and wonderful company:  $5-35 sliding scale.
