2019 Ann Arbor Santa Sightings

Are your kids counting down the days until Santa arrives? While they have to wait until Christmas for the gift delivery, we’ve got details on all Ann Arbor Santa Appearances.

Ann Arbor Santa Sightings

We are currently adding Santa events for 2019. Be sure to check back throughout the season.

Ann Arbor Santa Meals

There are several Santa Meals around Ann Arbor this holiday season. I love Santa Meals as a relaxed way for the kids to interact with Santa. Many of the Santa meals require advance registration and sell out. Be sure to check our list (and lists for Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties) and make your reservations.

North Pole Express

The North Pole Express is a bit further from Ann Arbor. They run the Pere Marquette 1225 (PM 1225). The blueprints for this train were usedΒ to make the train in the Polar Express Movie. Unfortunately there are sold out for 2019, but check back in case of cancellations. It looks like tickets went on sale in March – so mark your calendar to get tickets for next year.
