Eureka Springs Paranormal Weekend

SOLD OUT

We apologize but due to popular demand this event is now Sold Out.  Crescent ghost tours for the general public will still be open during these weekends.

Eureka Springs  Paranormal Weekend invites your to join us in another 3 Day Paranormal Event January 9, 10, 11 2015.  The ESP event will again feature an expertly guided behind the scenes quest for evidence in the famed Crescent Hotel but will also include a one-of-a-kind investigation of its sister hotel, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, which will be fully closed off and dark exclusively for event participants.

This three-day, hands on investigation puts tools of the paranormal investigator in your hands as well as an introduction to ghost hunting , tour of the property on the ghost tour and unheard of 24 hour access to “active space” including rooms 218, 419, and THE MORGUE at America’s Most Haunted Hotel.

Lodging Packages

2 Night ESP Package

1 Night ESP Package

Stayover Sunday for just $89  at the Crescent Hotel for the private investigation at the Basin Park Hotel.    The Basin Park Hotel will be fully closed off and dark exclusively for event participants only.  Call 877-342-9766 to Stayover Sunday at the Crescent.

 

We have capped attendance (and reluctantly had to turn some folks away) to keep the group sizes down to reasonable proportions. And we have extended the hours of access to active areas to include the entire night.

Late Friday and Saturday evenings, veteran Paranormal Investigator Larry Flaxman will guide small group investigations. When they conclude, the rest of the night is yours to independently investigate known active areas.

And on Sunday night Larry will be conducting a guided investigation of the sister hotel to the Crescent, the historic Basin Park – which will be closed and entirely empty for the occasion!

Ghost tours, a ghost play, Ozark tales of ghosts and the supernatural, personal ESP evaluation and the ever-popular Psychomanteum (this year constructed at the highest point in the Ozarks – the notorious Norman Baker’s penthouse suite, 502), van tours of Eureka Springs – all this and plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with others of similar interests to your own – plus T-shirts!

If we were not able to accommodate you in 2015, please stay in touch and maybe we can be persuaded to run ESP for two weekends next year…

ESP weekend – a Eureka Springs tradition.

Christmas at the Crescent

“Christmas At The Crescent” Has
Become Eureka Springs Tradition

Christmastime at this Historic Hotel of America has become one of The Ozarks region’s most popular winter holiday traditions.

Christmas Eve-The 1886 Steakhouse will be open for dinner service from 5:30pm-9pm.View Menu.

Christmas Day-Breakfast will be served from 8am-10am.

Christmas Day Feast-Will be served from 11am-3pm.  $24.95 per person. Call for reservations: 479-253-9652

Sky Bar Gourmet Pizzeria will be open Christmas Day serving regular menu from 6pm-8pm.  View Menu.

Part of that tradition is the Christmas at the Crescent Week.

“When we first started this annual event 14 years ago it consisted of a live Nativity scene, wonderful decorations, Santa’s Brunch and free holiday movies for our guests,” said hotel General Manager and Vice-President of Operations Jack Moyer. “The crowds were small that year but everyone who attended had a great time. So much so, it encouraged us to expand our holiday decorations at the property and build up events during this week not only for our hotel but to also impact the holiday season for the entire community of Eureka Springs.”

One such community-wide event is the Lighting of the Christmas Forest on Saturday, December 6 at 6 p.m. More than 30 trees will adorn the holiday focal point of the hotel’s nearly 15 acres, The East Lawn. Each tree will be uniquely decorated one to the other since each tree represents a different local and area charity.

“Not only is our Christmas Forest a sparkling sight to behold, visitors to the forest can ‘vote’ for their favorite tree. At the end of the ‘election’ on December 31, each tree’s ‘votes’ will be donated to that charity. Additionally, the top three vote-getters also receive a nice cash prize donated from the hotel,” explained Moyer.

Santa arrives at the hotel on Sunday, December 7 when he is the star attraction at Santa’s Brunch. The two elements that guests are suggested to bring to this feast of holiday culinary delights are a large appetite and a camera. While eating to their hearts’ delight guests also getting a chance to sit on Ol’ Saint Nick’s lap for a chance to capture a photographic lifetime memory. Santa has been known to balance an entire family on his red velvet knees for that just right shot. Brunch is served from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. while Santa will be poised for photo ops from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Each weekday, the hotel’s activity department creates a festive to do, while at noon during this special holiday week, the hotel’s Crystal Ballroom swings open its doors for hungry patrons and school groups ready to perform for those enjoying a mid-day repast. Bands and choirs from local area middle and high schools present medleys of festive tunes that always bring back happy holiday memories from years gone by.

For those holiday travelers who long to return to the 19th century and the days of Charles Dickens, the Eureka Springs Readers Theater troupe presents a rousing adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” following a Dickensian-themed feast. This “Holiday Feast with Charles Dickens” is a Tuesday night affair, held December 9th in the hotel’s Crystal Ballroom. Reservations are recommended since seating is limited. Dinner is served at 6 p.m. followed by the performance.

Thursday night, December 11th will utilize that same hotel venue but this time it will be filled with the polished holiday musical stylings of The Ozarks Chorale, a popular vocal ensemble that has performed in New York City’s prestigious Carnegie Hall. A dinnertime concert entitled “Sounds of the Season” is planned at 6:30 p.m. as the executive chef offers up its special “Tastes of The Holidays” menu accompanied by one of the largest wine cellars in the state. Reservations are not required.

Christmas at the Crescent concludes with the Spring Street stroll down Eureka Springs’ Promenade from the Crescent Hotel to Crescent Spring and an event ONLY to beheld in 2014 as the Crescent celebrates a “Spirited Wedding Celebration” in the Christmas forest on 12-13-14.

“One great outcropping from our hotel’s annual event has been the evolution of the community pulling together to expand Christmas lighting throughout the town as well as make this week and the days surrounding it a true Christmas festival,” added Moyer.

Under the sponsorship of such organizations as Eureka Springs Downtown Network and the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, such delightful holiday events as the night-time Downtown Christmas Parade, Santa In The Park, Preservation Tour of Homes and festive shopping enhancements make historic Downtown Eureka Springs a winter wonderland.

“The Christmas season has become huge here in Eureka,” Moyer said. “Starting with Christmas parade Friday December 5th and continuing through Christmas at the Crescent and the Sweet Treats Christmas Tour the first two weeks of December are filled with holiday spirit and events. So many in fact this two-week celebration is now known as the ‘EurekaSprings.com Christmas Festival’.”

“Our ‘Christmas at The Crescent’ this year will allow our guests to ‘Live The Legend’ here at our hotel, the symbol of Arkansas hospitality since 1886,” concluded Moyer.
