Ann Arbor Live Reindeer Appearances

There are several options for seeing real Reindeer near Ann Arbor at any time – not just at an event. Unfortunately, the nearest Reindeer farm I found was in Kalamazoo and Frankenmuth.

  • Frankenmuth – Grandpa Tiny’s Farm – Santa’s Reindeer Farm – November 18-December 17
  • Kalamazoo – Reindeer Ranch – Take their Reindeer Tour throughout the year. Between Thanksgiving & Christmas, you can add a visit with Santa on weekends

The Toledo Zoo has reindeer. You can visit them during Lights Before Christmas (get details in our holiday lights guide). You can even adopt a reindeer through the Zoo PAL program or even buy them lunch through a donation.

Sven, the Creature Conservatory’s Reindeer appears on their Stone Stage on Saturdays and Sundays in December. They are open 1-5p on Saturday and Sunday.
