Upcoming evernts, happenings, festivals and specials in Berkeley Springs, WV

Week of December 15-21, 2014

It's the final weekend before Santa makes his appearance on Christmas Day and Berkeley Springs is an ideal getaway to enjoy both a little bustle of the season and even more peace of the season. There's even plenty of community music fun.

It starts on Thursday evening with the Berkeley Springs High School Show Choir, Concert Choir and the Warm Springs Middle School Choir performing their annual Winer Concert at the high school auditorium starting at 7:30pm. On Saturday night, there are two "jams." Jingle Jam has kids staging the Best Christmas Pageant Ever at Berkeley Springs High School from 6-8pm. Then you can go into town to the Granary for their Christmas Jam of local musicians starting at 7pm. On Sunday from 4-5:30pm at the Granary, you can participate in Circle Song.

Town is splendidly decorated and lit and its charming shops are well-stocked with gift items you cannot find just anywhere. Several locales have special treats for shoppers including cider at Berkeley Springs Memories and homemade cookies with hot chocolate at Jules. Saturday afternoon stop by Wilkes St. Wine Shop for a free wine tasting. Berkeley Springs is a noted art town and there is plenty of local, regional and American art to buy at Mountain Laurel Gallery, the Ice House Co-op Gallery and its special Holiday Art Market at the Ice House. Also check out Heath Galleries and Lions Lair for more art. Town is also welcoming all last minute shoppers with free parking from Saturday through Christmas Day.

Spas are also ready for you to drop by. Awakening Holistic Center across from the park and springs is holding an Open House on Saturday from 3-5pm. Refreshments will be served and you can meet and greet the practitioners learning about everything from dowsing to reflexology for your health. At Atasia Spa they have a special Winter Solstice skin treatment guaranteed to have you smooth and shiny for Christmas. All our spas are open and offering gift certificates, perfect holiday presents for everyone from dad to big sis. Yep, that's right, dad. Did you know that 30% of facials are given to men? not to mention those steams and massages.

You need to eat to fuel all this bustle -- or retreat. Restaurants are decorated and several have their seasonal menus in place. Check out all the menus.

Cacapon State Park has its outdoor wilderness open with a guided hike on Saturday starting at 9:45am and a craft workshop out 3:15pm where you can make a cardinal ornament celebrating West Virginia's state bird, perfectly colored for the season.

One outdoor holiday treat that's hard to beat is acquiring your Christmas tree. There are local trees cut and in lots near town or several places you can go to cut your own. There's even a place you can sleep AND get a tree -- Sleepy Creek Tree Farm.

Places to stay are interesting, welcoming and offering something for every taste ranging from the historic Country Inn adjacent to the park and warm springs, B&Bs in town, cabins, cottages and vacation homes in the countryside. Some have spa rooms, others offer a fireplace or wood stove. Check out all our pillows, make your choice and head out to "take the waters" in nearby Berkeley Springs.
