Fairmont Chicago expands popular holiday cookie event

To kick off the winter holiday season, Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park is hosting its fourth annual Cookies and Cheer, a Luxury Cookie Exchange.

Due to its incredible popularity, Cookies and Cheer has grown into a two-night event for the first time. The event will be held Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Cookies and Cheer gives guests the opportunity to mix and mingle with Fairmont’s esteemed culinary staff while enjoying wine tastings and sampling an incredible array of seasonal cookies. This modern take on the cookie exchange takes the stress out of holiday baking, and attendees will take home three dozen gourmet cookies of their choice, wrapped in custom luxury packaging.

In addition to cookies and wine, Friday night visitors will be treated to a special adult hot chocolate bar. To keep the fun going all night long, Fairmont Chicago is also offering a new guestroom package for both evenings that will include admission to the Cookies and Cheer event for two people.
