Oxford's Winter Survival Guide - A Passport

Winter Survival Guide logo

Welcome to Oxford's Winter Survival Guide- Dining, Events & Retail passport! Beginning the first of December, you'll be able to pick up a passport from the Enjoy Oxford office (14 W. Park Place), the Oxford Community Arts Center (10 S. College Ave.) and at various events. If you prefer to print at home, download the pdf here.

The deadline to turn in your passport is Friday, January 28th.

Safety first: Please learn more about Oxford's COVID safety here.

How does it work?

1. Pick up your passport!

2. Begin exploring Oxford businesses and events. The more businesses & events you go to, the more stickers you'll get! Simply walk up to a friendly employee at the register or see event staff and let them know you'd like a sticker for your passport.

You do not need to make a purchase at the participating businesses to get a sticker, though we think you'd definitely benefit from getting some of your holiday shopping done at the same time! Two birds with one stone, and all that. Plus, you'll be supporting local, and what's better than that? To help you get started, we've even put together a Winter Decor & Dressing Warm guide so you'll know exactly where in town to go to get your cute winter decorations this year, plus where to get the coziest sweaters and thickest socks.

3. Once you’ve accumulated as many stickers as you wish (the more the better!), fill out your contact information inside the passport, then turn it back into the Enjoy Oxford office. If we're closed, you can leave it in the box on the door. Or you can simply take a photo of the inside of the passport so we can see where you went, then send your photos to Info@EnjoyOxford.org

4. Your name will be entered in a drawing! If you won a prize, we'll be in touch! See how easy that was?

Where to go & Things to Do (Events are NEW in the passport this season)

Here is a list of participating businesses and events happening around Oxford where you can check off the locations in your passport and get a sticker either from an employee or an event staff person. Remember, the more businesses or events you go to, the bigger prize you're eligible to win!

If a business has an asterisk next to its name, that means it's participating in the DORA! You can get a drink at these locations and walk around uptown with them.
