Greenwich Reindeer Festival Kickoff Party!

Santa and his reindeer, Dasher, Dancer and Prancer, return for the 11th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village located at “the North Pole on North Street,” Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, 437 North Street, Greenwich, Connecticut, from November 29 to December 24, 2019. The cherished town tradition takes place at this stunning holiday décor destination which is transformed into Santa’s Workshop sponsored by Greenwich Catholic School, where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, and Santa’s Village, where families have the opportunity to visit the reindeer, enjoy train and carousel rides and select food trucks on the weekend, all just minutes from downtown Greenwich.

The community is invited to Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses for the “We’re Back” Party on Friday, November 29, from 12-6 PM, for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with sponsors and public officials to officially open Santa’s Workshop for photos with Santa. While waiting for the reindeer to arrive, guests can enjoy refreshments from Planet Pizza, face painting, balloon art, and dance performances by Allegra Dance of Greenwich.

Children, adults, corporate groups, and even pets (on leashes) can have their photo taken with Santa at Santa’s Workshop sponsored by Greenwich Catholic School. Photo packages begin at $29.99 and include a special Shop & Dine Greenwich Gift Bag filled with Greenwich merchant information and hundreds of dollars in savings redeemable at participating stores and restaurants in Greenwich. Digital photos are provided on a USB drive. Enter the Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich Raffle, to win a Mercedes-Benz Children’s Bicycle with every photo with Santa (one raffle per family).
