Santa's Workshop


Presented by A Cedarburg Christmas



Thanks to generous grants from the Greater Cedarburg Foundation and

Festivals of Cedarburg, Inc., a charming 15' x 15' gingerbread house graces

Cedarburg's Washington Avenue for the entire Christmas season.  Santa and,

sometimes Mrs. Claus, stop by in the days leading up to Christmas, welcoming

families into the shop for a cozy, personal visit. When Santa's not in to greet

guests, you can peek in the windows to see his charming fireplace and the toys

he and the elves have been working on! 

We currently offer a pre-registration option for Santa's Workshop to relieve long wait times. PLEASE NOTE, these pre-registered spots fill up quickly and represent fewer than 1/3 of the families that come through the house - the system is in place to help our volunteer manage the crowds, not to provide preferential treatment to those who pre-register.


We accommodate walk ups every day.  If you do walk upswe recommend you get to the Workshop early in the shift to get your name on the list, and our volunteers will give you a time your family can get in to see Santa on that day.  Also, our sponsored days are completely open to walk-ups so families can enjoy the sponsored activities in the Community Center while they wait to see Santa!  Remember, this is a very busy time for Santa, so plan early to ensure a visit!

  • Families are allowed one slot, regardless of the number of children in the
    family.  We will see them all. 

  • Our hope is that every family gets to see Santa Claus and that no one ever feels
    rushed. We are not always able to keep to the schedule 100%, but we do our best to stick to the timing as closely as possible.

  • Cedarburg's Santa's Workshop is organized by the Cedarburg Christmas Committee, a small subcommittee of Festivals of Cedarburg. The committee's intent is to promote Cedarburg as a holiday shopping and event destination and be a hub for all things Christmas each year.  Santa's Workshop is run ENTIRELY by volunteers who are giving up their free time during the busy holiday season to bring this special experience to families. Please treat them kindly!
