Santa’s Castle 2021

Santa's Castle AnnouncementWe want to thank everyone for supporting Santa’s Castle. We are less than a week from launch and have officially sold out. If you were unable to get tickets this year we hope to see you next year.

Dover Youth to Youth is hosting its 14th annual Santa’s Castle at the McConnell Center in downtown Dover for 3 days during the Christmas season. Each night children and their families will be able to tour several rooms in Santa’s Castle and meet Santa and many of his elves.

During the first weekend, the event will be held on Friday December 17th from 4:30 – 7:30 pm and Saturday December 18th between the hours of 2 – 6:30 pm. The Castle will conclude on Thursday, 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.

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 7 and include family members only. To insure the safety of all guests and performers, all visitors over the age of 3 are expected to wear a mask, social distancing of guests and performers will be observed, and the groups going through the tour will be spaced out more than in the past.
