Get your tickets to SantaFest!
Santa is always busy during the holiday season, but every year he takes a break before his big night to visit with his favourite little fans at his cottage summer home, Santa’s Village.
This year Santa is inviting you to visit him at SantaFest, inside Santa’s Village during the weekends of December 8/9, 15/16 and 22/23. The event will be filled with Santa’s favourite winter activities like gingerbread cookie decorating, face painting, games, Christmas crafts and of course, one last chance to visit with the big guy himself!

More family fun in Bracebridge
Your family fun can (and SHOULD) continue all weekend long in Bracebridge!
Your little ones will love The Play Pit, Muskoka’s Indoor Playground. It is a safe, climate controlled environment for children under the age of 10 years old to jump, climb, slide and play. Only a short distance form Santa’s Village, this is the perfect way to exert some energy and continue having the BEST day ever! They are a sock facility, so cover up those twinkle toes.
