This event has been extremely popular in previous years and has sold out FAST. In order to accommodate even more families while still maintaining a quality experience, we have grown the event to THREE sessions for 2019!

  • Parking in the lot in front of the building is $6 per vehicle and is NOT included in the ticket price. If you choose to park in the lot, be prepared to bring cash to pay for parking upon entry. There is also street parking off 84th Street that would be an option as well.
  • Each session has a limited number of tickets available to make sure each child gets the opportunity to meet Santa, enjoy a cookie and participate in all activities. We cannot add any additional spots once tickets are sold out.
