Return to Santa’s Village and Feel the Magic of Christmas

Relive your childhood and visit Santa and all of his Northwoods friends inside the nostalgic Santa’s Village! We know how many great memories were made at Santa’s Village in the past and we want to continue to inspire new traditions. This year, we are excited to announce many new activities, as well as live entertainment! You can enjoy interactive storytelling throughout the park and live music from groups such as The Mistletones!

Santa’s House 

Santa has been sleeping all year and is just itching to wake up and meet all the wonderful faces of the Good Girls and Boys! Visit Santa in his cozy cabin and touch the icy North Pole that is right outside his house. These are prime photo opportunities to paste in your scrapbook and look back on. Sometimes Santa’s elf family and friends of the Northwoods will stop by his house to say hi to guests so keep an eye out!

Northwoods Characters 

Santa’s friends and family in the Northwoods are what truly set apart Santa’s Village from the rest and you can only find them in Lake Arrowhead! Guests can hear exciting stories of Santa’s adventures from his brother and King of the Northwoods, Celwyn Claus. They can also learn about the 12 Days of Christmas in the form of selected yoga positions from Santa’s favorite elf, CJ Kuffelbug. Other Northwoods characters are seen roaming around the park. They love to greet guests and do everything they can to put a smile on guests’ faces.

Delightful Experiences to Make Enduring Memories

There are so many memories to be made at Santa’s Village, and that’s why we do our best to Make Spirits Bright!

During Breakfast with Santa, you can join Santa and his elves for a whole hearted breakfast party in his very own private dining room. This time allows children to spend plenty of time interacting with Santa.
