Have Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Santa at Over 200 Locations

Breakfast with Santa, Brunch with Santa, Lunch with Santa, Dinner with Santa . . . . . . and if that’s not enough, how about Cookies with Santa?

If you take a look at all the breakfasts with Santa, lunches with Santa, brunches and dinners with Santa scheduled for the 2017 Holiday season just in the Chicago area and Northern, Illinois its not surprising the old fellow has a weight problem. Almost all of the events listed charge attendees, usually more for adults and less for children. Often a picture with Santa is included as well as a token gift or treat. Most of the time you are also allowed to take your own photos and videos. Just about every meal with Santa requires advance reservations. For complete details, contact the host organization. While we have taken great care to ensure the accuracy of these listings errors can and do occur. While we believe the following information is correct, always call ahead and confirm events in advance—times and dates can and dochange and we cannot be responsible for errors oromissions.
