Cook's Holiday Lunch

Cook's Holiday is an annual holiday feast enjoyed by UGA’s community and guests. Hosted since 1986, Cook's Holiday serves up an array of holiday meals, decorations and musical accompaniments.

Due to utility work scheduled to occur in the area surrounding Bolton in mid-December, Cook's Holiday will temporarily move to the Village Summit at Joe Frank Harris Commons for 2018.

General seating for the lunch buffet will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 13 and 14. A limited number of lunch reservations will be accepted for 10:30-11:15 a.m. The dinner buffet will be held Dec. 13 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The event will include lunch and dinner buffets of menu items such as creamy southern style shrimp and grits, maple glazed black oak ham and wild mushroom risotto. Live music will be provided by The Musicsmiths for both of the lunch meals, and The Allegro Quartet will perform during the dinner meal.

Standard parking rates will be in effect during the event. Attendees are encouraged to carpool or use campus transit to access the event.

Tickets will be available online or in-person at the Tate Center box office (9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday - Friday). Tickets are nonrefundable.
