Reserve Your Spot for Santa Village Daycare Days

Santa visits with the kids at Daycare DaysThe Fargo Park District is now accepting reservations for Daycare Days at Santa Village. This time is set aside to specifically accommodate licensed daycares. We ask that Daycare groups be in the bunkhouse entrance 5 minutes before the scheduled time for an easy transition between groups.

A reservation is required to attend Daycare Days due to the limited space and timeslots available. Please book your group early. Reservations are taken on a first-come first-serve basis. We will begin taking reservations today, October 15th at 8:00 am. Note that the time you register for is the time your group begins their visit with Santa not your time of arrival. Please consider this when making your arrangements for transportation to Santa Village.

Mrs. Claus reads to the children at Daycare DaysTo reserve a time at Daycare Days, please call 499-7788 on or after October 15th.  Times can be reserved between 9:00-11:00 am and 1:00-3:00 pm each of the following days:

• Friday, December 5th

Santa Village is located at Rheault Farm, 2902 25th Street South in Fargo. Our parking lot and entrance gate is along 30th Avenue, directly across from Vision Bank. Bundle up! Little ones tend to get cold during the walk from the parking lot to see Santa.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for children to visit with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves.  There will be opportunity for group photos with Santa, however there is not time for individual photos.

Children will also meet Santa’s reindeer. There is ample time for photos with the reindeer at the end of your time in Santa’s Village. Please remember that Santa’s reindeer are in training for Christmas Eve and cannot eat outside food.

The model train will also be running and if you would like the children to put money in the train, you may consider bringing a roll of pennies, nickels, etc. for children to share.

The daycare visit is free; however, each group is encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, new or gently used toys, or cash donations. Santa Village distributes the donations to the Great Plains Food Bank, Season of Hope, the Children’s Miracle Network, and YMCA 21st Century Learning Center.

Come early or stay late to explore all of Santa Village!

We look forward to seeing you at Rheault Farm for Daycare Days. If you have any questions please contact us at 701-499-7788.
