We are so excited for the 2022 Santa’s Castle! The event will be held on Friday December 16th from 4:30 – 7:30 pm and Saturday December 17th between the hours of 2 – 6:30 pm. The Castle will conclude on Friday, December 23rd from 4:30-7:30 pm.
During the tour, students from Youth to Youth, acting as elves will guide visitors through Rudolph’s stable, Santa’s toy room, Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen and other parts of the Castle. The tour culminates with a visit with Santa.
Along the tour, children will be entertained by the elves and will collect small gifts in each room. Families are welcome to bring a camera and take pictures or video during the tour and with Santa. The experience takes about 20 minutes, but will vary based on the age of the children and interest in these activities.
This year Santa’s Castle will be a little different. In order to attend, pre-registration is required. Groups making a reservation must be no larger than 6. To ensure the safety of all guests and performers, participants are expected to observe social distancing and the groups going through the tour will be spaced out more than in the past. To pre-register, go the the calendar below, select a date, time, and fill out the form.
Santa’s Castle is designed for children ages 8 and under, but the whole family is invited. The cost is a flat fee of $25 per reservation. Proceeds support the anti-drug activities of Dover Youth to Youth.
Entrance to Santa’s Castle will be from the Saint Thomas Street side of the McConnell Center (Door #7). Parking is available in the parking lot located behind the Dover Public Library and on the street by the Dover District Court.
