The best places to visit Santa in Brampton

The Christmas season is in full swing, but it isn’t too late to get those visits with Santa in! Here’s a list of places you can get this year’s photo with the big guy in red.

1. Bramalea City Centre Santa (Beside Pandora)

This option seems to be the go-to for most people. Catch a photo-op with Santa in the Bay Court outside Pandora in his winter wonderland! This is a popular spot and once it gets closer to Christmas wait times can be more than two hours, so choose your time to visit carefully. Click here to see Santa’s hours.

2. VIP Santa Experience at BCC

BCC has another offering this year for those looking to skip the long lineups and get a little more time with Santa. A booking gets you 10 minutes with Santa, some professional photos with prints and digital images included. There’s flexibility to try different poses and you get to hang with him in his swanky Santa lounge. It has comfy chairs and beautiful decor. There’s a waiting room with toys to occupy the little ones and you’re even welcome to bring your phone to take photos too, which is usually not allowed Elves will greet you at the door and make sure your experience as comfortable as possible.

3. Shoppers World

While “Storytime with Santa” is already sold out, you can still visit with Santa every day from now until Christmas Eve. On Sunday, December 11, bring your furry friends between 5:30 and 7:30 pm for a festive photo. Visit for more info.

4. Downey’s Farm

You probably know all about visiting Downey’s in the summer and fall, but did you know that Santa comes in December as well?

5. Christmas in the Park at Chinguacousy Park

In addition to free activities including wagon rides, performances, marshmallow roasting and more, you can book photo time with Santa while he visits the park. If the weather cooperates, bring your skates and check out the new skating trail. Click here  to book your time slot with Santa.
