SANTA’S VILLAGE ATTRACTIONS

This long time attraction is located in the San Bernardino mountains off Highway 18 in the quaint town of SKYFOREST, CA. A real must see how Bill Johnson and family have brought the old Santa’s Village back to life by updating and breathing life back into it with many of the outbuildings remodeled, yards and yards of cement poured for the charming paths that scroll through the village. In the winter months the roller rink is transformed into an ice skating rink, there are miles of mountain bike paths. During December Santa and Mrs. Clause are on hand for photos.
Enjoy a Christmas experience unlike any other as SkyPark at Santa’s Village lights up through the night.

2018 CONCERT NOTES:
Since there is no shade cover, we recommend wearing a hat for daytime events!
This year, we have lowered the price of reserving the FRONT row of picnic tables due to possible sight obstruction by patrons on the dance floor. We hope this helps those who don’t mind the crowds in front but still wish to guarantee a place to sit for friends and family!
Free lawn chair seating is available on the grass and in standing areas/dance floor only.
