13th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop

Santa and his live reindeer are returning to Greenwich for the 13th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop presented by Jenny Allen/Compass Real Estate, “the North Pole on North Street”, at Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, from November 26 to December 24. The cherished town tradition continues for the 13th consecutive year where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer and also enjoy the new Santa’s Workshop, which provides more space for families while they wait in line for their photo with Santa.

The community is invited for a “We’re Back Day” on November 26, from noon to 6pm, when Santa’s Workshop officially opens for photos with Santa. While waiting for the reindeer to arrive in the afternoon, everyone can enjoy special refreshments and other special activities. Children, adults and pets (on leashes) can have their photo taken with Santa at Santa’s Workshop. 

A portion of all photos with Santa will be donated to Kids In Crisis, a nonprofit organization based in Greenwich that serves all families in Connecticut. Admission to Sam Bridge and parking are free. Pricing for photo packages is available at Hours for the Photos with Santa are Monday through Friday, noon to 6 pm, and Saturday, 9am to 6pm. Sam Bridge is closed on Sundays. The reindeer will depart on December 22, but Santa will remain for photos through Christmas Eve, 9am to 3pm.

Throughout the four weeks, the reindeer will make Sam Bridge their home, thanks to sponsors, Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, Jenny Allen/Compass, Greenwich Pediatric Dental Group, Greenwich Hospital, The Long Ridge School, Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich and many media sponsors including Greenwich Magazine and Natural Awakenings Magazine. The event is produced by TMK Sports & Entertainment, LLC, a Greenwich-based event-marketing company.
