Christmas Uptown Greenwood is our favorite time of year!
Each Holiday season beginning just before Thanksgiving Uptown becomes to stir with wonder. Christmas Uptown Greenwood, SC is a winter wonderland. We are committed to bringing Christmas Magic to Uptown Greenwood for families near and far to share and enjoy. The Inn on the Square has a display of themed Christmas Trees in each common area. One of the Inn’s owners, Jim McGuinness, brings gingerbread building to another level. Come Uptown and enjoy a stroll along the dazzling display of lit trees, join us for one of many featured dinners, and finish in the Fox & Hound Lounge for an evening nightcap before you head upstairs to one of our beautifully appointed guest rooms.
Introducing Greenwood Inn Gingerbread
Join us this holiday season and enjoy a display of community participation, highlighting Greenwood and the surrounding areas, made of Gingerbread. It is our goal to encourage individuals and community groups and organizations to re-create, from gingerbread, homes/buildings/and landmarks in Greenwood.
HOW IT BEGAN – Three years ago when we first opened the hotel we knew that we needed a signature fundraising event. Jim McGuinness, owner and operator, has always loved Christmas and began building gingerbread houses with his boys when they were just children. We decided to incorporate this family memory into building new ones in Greenwood. With the help of the Bowers Rodgers Children’s Home, the Inn on the Square has continued to develop this event year after year.
In the past two years the event was limited to one gingerbread house on display made by McGuinness himself and the gingerbread building event for the children. This year we invite you to join us in growing greater as we introduce “Greenwood Inn Gingerbread”.
