Santa and his LIVE reindeer – Dancer, Dasher and Prancer – 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,” Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, 437 North Street, Greenwich, Connecticut, from November 26 to December 24, 2021. The cherished town tradition continues for the thirteenth consecutive year at this expansive nursery 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. A portion of all photos with Santa will be donated to Kids In Crisis, a non-profit organization based in Greenwich. A Kids In Crisis Giving Tree will also be available for people to support their important mission. This
all takes place just minutes from downtown Greenwich. Parking is free.
The community is invited to Sam Bridge for a “We’re Back Day” on Friday, November 26, from noon to 6 pm, 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. Throughout the four weeks, the reindeer will make Sam Bridge their home, thanks to Reindeer Sponsors Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses, Greenwich Hospital, ONS / Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists, and The Long Ridge School.
