Santa and his three LIVE reindeer return to Greenwich for the 15th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop presented by Jenny Allen / Compass Real Estate, the “North Pole on North Street,” Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses. The cherished town tradition continues for the fifteenth consecutive year at this expansive nursery where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer and also enjoy Santa’s Workshop sponsored by Greenwich Pediatric Dental Group, which provides more space for families. Guests can enjoy the “Reindeer Coloring Station” sponsored by Jenny Allen/Compass and “Letter Writing to Santa Station” sponsored by Greenwich Pediatric Dental Group,” 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.

The community is invited to Sam Bridge for a “We’re Back Party Days” on Friday, November 24, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, November 25, 9 a.m to 6 p.m., when Santa’s Workshop officially opens for photos with Santa. While waiting for the reindeer to arrive Friday afternoon, everyone can enjoy special refreshments, balloon artists, live music entertainment, Rising Starr Horse Rescue, food trucks and many other special activities, which will also continue all-day Saturday!
