This year things are looking much different at the holidays, but our community has done a fabulous job planning ahead. Local venues have found ways to bring the joy of the holidays, the lights of Christmas, and the visits with Santa to us in safe surroundings. This directory includes pictures, visits, and other events with Santa in Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem, Kernersville, Burlington and other surrounding areas.

This “Places to See Santa” directory will be housed on our “Directory Page” here. It will also be updated weekly with NEW events as they are announced. Check back often!

You will also want to view our Holiday Lights and Parades directory here.

We have divided the Triad Santa Photo Opportunities and Triad Santa Sightings into different categories. Click on the category below to go directly to those listings.
