Santa Saturdays
at Meadow Brook

‘Tis the season for believing. Everyone holds a Christmas wish close to their heart–and Santa Claus is ready to hear them all. It is the time of year to feel hope and to believe in something special.

On select Saturdays this holiday season, Santa and his live reindeer will fly to Meadow Brook for a magic-filled afternoon. Guests can see the reindeer in the courtyard outside the historic mansion and have the chance to tell Santa their wishes inside the elegant Christopher Wren Dining Room.

Visits with Santa and the reindeer are included with tickets for Holiday Walk, Meadow Brook’s daytime, indoor holiday experience that features the historic mansion decorated in shimmering splendor.

Eat, drink and be merry with us! During Santa Saturdays, we’ll be offering seasonal concessions, which include hot chocolate with whipped cream, fresh popped popcorn, warm roasted cinnamon almonds and soft gingerbread cookies.
