**Elements of this event will change significantly from previous years due to COVID-19 precautions. This page will be updated with current information weekly on Wednesdays.**

With the wellbeing of the community as the primary focus, you’ll notice significant changes at the Santa Village event this year due to COVID-19 precautions but there’s still plenty to enjoy! Event organizers will still offer a in-person event experience on limited days in December and are moving other components of the event online for families to enjoy in a virtual setting.  

Santa and Mrs. Claus want to make sure they make it to everyone’s home this year, so they will not be at this year’s event in person. Breakfast with Santa and Daycare Days are cancelled this year at Santa Village. Santa Village dates will be condensed to two weekends at Rheault Farm and masks are required. No indoor spaces will be open during the event.

Celebrate the season of giving at Rheault Farm this holiday season by planning a visit to Santa Village. Santa Village, located on a 15-acre enclosed farm site, is a non-commercial village where children and adults can make holiday memories and celebrate the Season of Giving. Remember to dress warm and bring your camera!

Personalized Greetings from Santa and Mrs. Claus are closed. Enjoy the magic of Christmas at your home!

Admission to Santa Village is free, however, guests are encouraged to bring donations of canned goods, cash, and new toys to the in-person event. These donations are then used to support area organizations including the Giving Tree of Hope, the Children's Miracle Network, the YMCA 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and the Great Plains Food Bank. Santa Village does not keep any of these donations.

Due to COVID-19, we are not accepting used toy donations this year.

Don’t forget, now through December 24, participate in our Season of Giving challenge through the GooseChase app. To join in, download the GooseChase app on your smartphone and enter the game code (JW97MX) to get started. Select photos may be shared on social media. 

Since Santa and Mrs. Claus are not able to be at Santa Village this year, we wanted to spread more Christmas cheer, so we worked with members of the Fargo community to create a brand new book called, Santa's Favorite Things. This book is all about Santa Village, the Season of Giving and why Santa loves this time of year. This limited edition soft-cover book is personally signed by Santa and sure to delight family members young and old. 100% of the proceeds from the book sales are donated back to community organizations. Purchase your book at our event on December 12-13 and 18, 19 or 20.
