11th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village
December 3, 2019 EST
Santa and his live reindeer – Dasher, Dancer and Prancer – are coming back for the 11th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village, returning to “the North Pole on North Street” at Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, from Nov. 29 to Dec. 24, 2019.
The cherished town tradition continues for the 11th consecutive year at the nursery, where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer and enjoy the new Santa’s Village, train and carousel rides, all just minutes from downtown Greenwich. Parking is free.
The community is invited to Sam Bridge for a “We’re Back Party” on Friday, Nov. 29, from noon to 6 p.m., when Santa’s Workshop is officially open. While waiting for the reindeer to arrive in the afternoon, everyone can enjoy special refreshments, face painting, balloon art and dance demonstrations.
For four weeks, the reindeer will make Sam Bridge their home, thanks to reindeer stable sponsor, Pepsi. Children, adults, corporate groups and even pets (on leashes) can have their photos taken with Santa at the workshop. Photo packages begin at $29.99 and include a gift bag filled with promotions redeemable at participating downtown Greenwich stores.
Hours for photos with Santa are Monday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sam Bridge is closed on Sundays.
The reindeer will depart on Dec. 22, but Santa will remain for photos until Christmas Eve, Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village is produced by TMK Sports & Entertainment, LLC and GreenwichMoms.com, both Greenwich-based businesses.
