Jewel's Handmade Holiday Tour

Grammy-nominated songwriter and New York Times’ bestselling author and poet Jewel will return to the road this holiday season for a one of a kind tour, performing holiday classics, holiday originals and classic Jewel songs alongside special guests, her father and brothers, Atz, Atz Lee and Nikos Kilcher (Alaska: The Last Frontier). The tour heads to The Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, December 2, 2017. A true family affair, the tour marks the first annual ‘Handmade Holiday Tour’ and Jewel’s first tour with her family members. During the pre-show, the tour stop at Fantasy Springs will feature a unique and interactive gifting experience offering guests the chance to make handmade one-of-a-kind holiday gifts. The tour will also sponsor 25 individuals in need per show and offer vouchers for the gift making workshops to ensure they have a handmade gift for the holidays. There will also be an opportunity for patrons to make donations and/or donate workshop vouchers to these families. In addition, Zappos.com will be working with local animal shelters in each market to sponsor pet adoption at every show as they kick off Home for the Pawlidayz, their nationwide pet adoption program.
