Holy peppermint sticks! I'm almost fully booked for the remainder of the year. Remaining dates/times available: Dec 23 all day; Dec 24 3:30- 4:00 pm.
Santa Edmonton thrills children of ages! A graduate of the 80-year-old Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School and the Christmas Performer's Workshop, Santa Edmonton is available for company parties, promotions, tree lightings, film, tv, and private home visits.
Santa Edmonton can award his limited edition "I'm on Santa's Nice List" medallions and custom printed certificates to each child.
I can also bring a professional photographer so mom and dad can enjoy our visit instead of worrying about getting the pics.
Santa Edmonton was everything I was hoping for!
Not only is he professional, has a great attention to detail and is very reliable...but above all he knows how to create Christmas Magic for the little ones and their families. You can tell he is very passionate and he is very committed in creating a very unique experience for everyone he meets.
I would definitely recommend him!
This Santa is simply incredible! He made a wonderful entrance with his bells jingling and “ho ho ho-ing” through the door shaking little hands and giving out hugs as he made his way through the room. He had the children and their parents in a magical trance with his authentic costuming, which included a key to Santa's workshop, and absolutely delightful and gentle manner with each of the guests. Each child was given a Santa medallion as a gift along with a personalized certificate. They also took a professional photo with Santa as well. We were very fortunate to have such a professional and endearing Santa Claus visit and spend time with our friends.
I will be sure to spread my recommendation for hiring this Santa for your next Christmas get together!
Price Range: $125 -$225/hr depending on day, ask for details
Gig Length: 60 - 480 minutes
What to Expect
Guests are often gathered around to greet Santa when he arrives. You may want him to go directly to the spot you've prepared for him, or he could roam around greeting guests. Once seated, he'll visit with each child, asking what they want for Christmas and checking the Naughty or Nice List.
If pre-arranged, Santa can even present each child with their own custom printed Nice List Certificate and "I'm on Santa's Nice List" medallion!
Santa can also present small gifts you supply. We'll provide instructions to make this go smoothly.
If Santa's photographer is there as well, we'll make sure each child is photographed with Santa. This is a fantastic gift to the mom or dad who is usually stuck taking pictures instead of enjoying the visit with their children.
Santa is a storyteller, so you may hear stories about life at the North Pole, or a secret or two about the reindeer.
Santa Edmonton began visiting children with special needs and has been bringing joy to kids of all ages for nine years.
He was fortunate to graduate from the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in 2017. This is the longest-running Santa school in the world and was started by Macy's original Santa. The focus of the school is how to be the best Santa possible and covers technique, story telling, appearance, etc. He is also a graduate of the Christmas Performer's Workshop, and an active member of the Santa Claus Conservatory.
He has a current RCMP background check and vulnerable sector clearance which is available on request.

Reserve a special parking place for Santa. It should be as close as possible to where he is visiting. If your event is at a company facility, office building or hotel, try to make arrangements for Santa to park in a valet or loading area.
A host should meet Santa when he arrives: to assist him; to show him where to park; to help load any presents into his special “Santa” bag; and to escort him to the location of the event.
If there is a balance or payment due to Santa, place it inside a Christmas card or envelope. Never give Santa money in front of the Children. It can ruin the magic of the moment.
Santa wears his boots with the big white fur tops outside and inside. Since he doesn’t take them off inside, you may want to prepare to keep things tidy: Outside, make sure walks are freshly shoveled from Santa’s reserved parking to the entrance.
Have your gifts ready. Santa normally does not bring any candy canes or gifts with him unless prearranged. He will hand out your candy and gifts and can carry in one bag of presents for children or guests, about 40 pounds.
Presents should be well labeled. We suggest a large black marking pen and writing directly on the gift, as tags can easily fall off.
Get everyone together, before Santa enters. Timing is everything. You have scheduled Santa for a set amount of time, which begins the minute he arrives. Unless otherwise arranged, he will not be able to stay longer than he has been booked for.
Have a sturdy chair for Santa to sit in. Folding chairs and low chairs (the ones you sink into) are not good. Santa usually likes a chair that is sturdy and stable. A good straight-back dining chair, with no arms, works well.
Place the Chair near your Christmas tree or in a holiday setting. Your photos will have more impact when the background has a festive look. Place a wreath, a few Christmas cards or your children’s drawings on the wall to make a wonderful difference.
Leave a couple of feet between the chair and the backdrop or wall. This will allow room for others to gather around and behind Santa’s chair for group photos.
Fireplaces look nice, but remember putting Santa too close to a real fire is not good for his comfort or health!
