Santa’s Toy Factory at North Point Mall
Santa arrives at North Point Mall on November 27! He will be meeting with all the good boys and girls in a socially distanced manner for photos and to hear what is on their holiday wish list. Bring your friends and family to Santa’s Toy Factory on Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. On Christmas Eve, Santa is in his workshop from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Reservations are required so secure your spot today!
For those who want to share their Christmas wishes with Santa but are unable to see him in person, North Point Mall has partnered with Jingle Ring. Jingle Ring makes it possible for multiple devices to join in the virtual experience, so the whole family can participate in the fun. Schedule your virtual visit with Santa here.
Storytime with Santa at Avalon
Settle into Santa’s backyard, the green space behind his cottage at Avalon, for holiday stories read by the big man in red each Monday of the holiday season now through December 21. Tickets are only needed for children, and all tickets can be refunded in the event of inclement weather. Be sure to bundle up if it’s chilly as storytime will take place outdoors this year!
Breakfast with Santa at Chick-fil-A Avalon
Join Santa at Chick-fil-A at Avalon for a special drive-in breakfast experience on Saturday, December 12! For $25 per car, the event includes a visit from Santa, two crafts and a gift for each child in the car. You will be directed to your assigned parking space and Santa will visit each vehicle individually for a great photo opportunity. While you are there, you can also stop in for a bite from Chick-fil-A’s delicious breakfast menu. As an added bonus, all proceeds from the event are being donated to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

He will be waving hello from atop an Alpharetta Fire Truck. Bring your letters to Santa and non-perishable food donations for North Fulton Community Charities. Santa’s guests receive a bag of holiday treats, with one per car and supplies are limited so make sure to arrive early!
For a greener and more cantankerous holiday visit….
Your heart will grow three sizes this season with a visit with The Grinch! The Alpharetta Community Center is hosting a Grinchmas Party where the Grinch himself is sure to make an appearance. The event is scheduled for Saturday, December 12 from 5 – 8 p.m. and will include watching the classic Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas movie, fun crafting activities and holiday treats. This is a great parent’s-night-out before the holidays. Pre-register your child for the event, drop them off and get all of your Christmas shopping taken care of or squeeze in a date night!
Christmas cheer will be spread to all who are near once you experience a fun Santa sighting. Be sure to share your photos and tag #AwesomeAlpharetta. For more fun things to do this holiday season Alpharetta, visit Holiday Happenings in Alpharetta | Awesome Alpharetta.
