Holiday Dining With Santa in Hampton Roads VA.jpg

Sometimes you just want to sit down and have a friendly meal with Santa! Many locations are NOT having meal or snack opportunities with Santa this year due to COVID-19.

Here is a list of events we have found where Santa is scheduled to appear (with health precautions like masks and social distancing in place) Please note, many of these events historically sell out early, and events may be canceled or rescheduled.

You can find these events (and more!) on our Hampton Roads Daily Calendar. Did we miss a local event? If it isn't listed, we don't know about it! Click HERE to Submit Additions to this free listing.
