Reindeer Festival at Swansons Nursery

Calendar/Event Details

Fri, November 24, 2017
Sun, December 24, 2017

Santa’s reindeer Dasher and Blitzen are at Swansons daily through Christmas Eve. Come visit! Coloring sheets for kids and spiced cider help create warm holiday memories. Souvenir holiday buttons are available, with the proceeds donated to the Ballard Food Bank. Learn about these incredible animals during our "Meet the Reindeer" sessions, 10 am Monday-Friday and 10 am and 4 pm on weekends. Reindeer selfie, anyone? Note: the 4pm session on December 24th will be held at 2pm to accommodate our early closing. Also note that the reindeers' camel buddy Curley has retired.

Watch model trains speed through fantastical landscapes in one of Swansons' favorite holiday traditions: the themed model train village! This year's theme draws from the Star Wars films and is bound to be a family favorite.

Portraits with Santa also available on select dates; see website for more details.

Reindeer Festival kick-off weekend: Nov. 11–12:

This weekend is a great time to bring the whole family to be the first to visit Santa's reindeer, Dasher and Blitzen, do some holiday shopping, and see the nursery beautifully decorated for the season! Kids can participate in a special holiday kids' activity Saturday and Sunday from 10 am-2 pm and everyone will love our "Meet the Reindeer" sessions each day at 10 am and 4 pm.
