The cherished town tradition continues for the fourteenth consecutive year at this expansive nursery where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer and also enjoy Santa’s Workshop, which provides more space for families, “Letter Writing to Santa Station” sponsored by Greenwich Pediatric Dental Group and a “Reindeer Coloring Station” sponsored by Jenny Allen/Compass while waiting in line for their photo with Santa.

A portion of all photos with Santa will be donated to Kids In Crisis, a non-profit organization based in Greenwich. A Kids In Crisis Giving Tree will also be available for people to support their important mission. This all takes place just minutes from downtown Greenwich. Parking is free. Children, adults, and all dogs (on leashes) can have their photo taken with Santa at Santa’s Workshop.

Please bring your dog for photos with Santa anytime we’re open, but for an added incentive to visit
Santa with your dog when the lines aren’t as long as Saturday, you’ll receive a Doggy Gift Bag sponsored by Cornell University Veterinary Specialists every Monday – Friday throughout the event.
