Santa Claus returns to visit with children in his Downtown Smithfield Workshop each December!

Despite Santa's busy schedule getting ready for Christmas, he is usually able to join us for a few hours on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in December.  Space is limited, so reservations are strongly recommended, and can be made by clicking here.  Without a reservation, you will have to wait until Santa is available.

While you're downtown visiting Santa, we hope that you will do some Christmas shopping, and visit our restaurants and attractions! 


We have to extend a huge thank you to Leonard Buildings & Truck Accesories for generously donating a building to serve as Santa's Downtown Smithfield Workshop each year!


Santa even brought his reindeer with him!
