Celebrating Family Traditions!

15th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa's Workshop presented by Jenny Allen/Compass

November 24 - December 23, 2023

Santa and his three LIVE reindeer are returning to Greenwich for the 15th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa's Workshop presented by Jenny Allen/Compass, "The North Pole on North Street", Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, 437 North Street, Greenwich, Connecticut, from November 25 to December 24, 2023. 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 the beautiful Santa's Workshop, which provides more space for families while they wait in line for their photo with Santa. This all takes place just minutes from downtown Greenwich. Parking is free. We are proud to support Kids In Crisis for the 15th consecutive year.

To recognize the 15th year, we'll be "CELEBRATING FAMILY TRADITIONS." We know that top of the list for hundreds of families is visiting Santa's LIVE Reindeer and having family and pet Photos with Santa at Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses. The unique holiday attraction has become an important family tradition for thousands of families over the past 15 years!

Help us celebrate the 15th year by sharing your families past Greenwich Reindeer Festival Photos with Santa. With your permission, we'll post them on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
