Visits With Santa

About This Event


Christmas Village


Included with garden admission


Santa is back in the garden in the perfect holiday setting–from his home in the North Pole to the Christmas Village!

Santa is back at the perfect Holiday setting – The Christmas Village. Share your Christmas wish with the jolly old man and take a photo to commemorate the occasion. Keepsake family photos are available for a donation to the Volunteer Advisory Board on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12-3pm beginning November 26 through December 24.  

The Santa line closes to guests based on expected wait time. If time remains prior to the end of Santa’s visit time, last minute guests will be permitted to see Jolly Old Saint Nick before he flies home for the evening.

Our 2022 Holiday at the Arboretum season features Santa Bill and Santa Eric. Please contact customer service at 214.515.6615 if you’d like to specifically know which Santa will be here.
