The first 3 weekends in December 2023!

Experience the magic of Santa and at Gumdrop Square in the magical setting of the historic John Barton Payne Building.

Santa will be meeting with children of all ages! Once the children feel comfortable with Santa, they will have the opportunity to take photos with him and tell him what they would like for Christmas. Parents are welcome to take as many photos as they'd like. As in years past, children will be able to shop for their friends and family at Santa's Secret Shop. Tickets will be available for purchase for $2 each upon entering the building. We will be accepting cash and credit/debit card payments this year. Individual gifts each cost 1 ticket and will be wrapped and ready to give.

This event is first come, first served, so be sure to dress warm and bring some hot cocoa to chase away the chill! The event is subject to change at anytime.

Currently Santa is scheduled to be at Gumdrop Square the following dates and times:

Saturdays - December 2, 9, & 16 from 11am-3pm

Sundays - December 3, 10, & 17 from 1-4pm

Bring your cameras and capture the magic!
