One of Fairfield’s most beloved holiday events is returning in 2019. For the 34rd year, Santa will make a special stop at Fairfield’s historic Burr Homestead to mingle with kids and parents and spread some holiday cheer.
Hosted by the Junior Women’s Club of Fairfield, “A Visit to Santa’s House” returns on December 13th and 14th. The Burr Homestead will be transformed into a winter wonderland for the JWC’s biggest fundraiser of the year with proceeds going to support our local CARE partner, The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library, as well as fund the JWC’s scholarship program.
Guests of all ages can also enjoy all the activities that keep them coming back year after year. This year’s performance schedule will feature the ever popular Nutcracker ballet by presenting sponsor Flash Pointe Dance, as well as Music Together, Lenihan Irish School of Dance, D’Valda and Sirico, Ryan San Angelo children’s musician, Kemp Karate and more. The always popular Candy Guess, will excite our young visitors to try to win a candy-licious jar by guessing the number of sweets it contain, while guests of all ages can test their luck in the raffle room — always filled with tantalizing prizes. This year’s Nutcracker Cafe will offer homemade treats both sweet and savory — new this year will be soup and hot dogs, as well as beverages and, of course, many baked goods and holiday sweets. Two local favorites will also be represented. In the Holiday Village train room, observe the festive train display provided by HobbyTown Fairfield or have your face painted or make a craft with the talented ladies of Hatter & Tatter.
Of course the highlight of “A Visit to Santa’s House” is a personal visit with Santa himself, when each child may spend a few special moments whispering their wish list into Santa’s ear. Parents are invited to capture these memories with their own cameras and smartphones free of charge.
