Breakfast with Santa for Philly Families

Since most of the Santa Breakfasts aren't happening in 2020, please see our Best Holiday and Christmas Events in 2020 article for more fun things to do.

It's that magical time of year again. Philly tots, tweens, and teens have been on their best behavior as they anticipate the jolly ol' elf from the North Pole's visit to the Delaware Valley. Of course, many Philly parents head to the mall so their children can share their wish lists with St. Nick. However, if you are looking for something special, consider taking the family to see Santa at a breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

Many venues including zoos, museums, gardens, community centers, ships, and country clubs welcome Mr. Kringle. Some provide games, crafts, and stories, but you can be sure all events include photo ops so bring your phone or camera.

Read through our list of upcoming events and schedule your breakfast with Santa today! Many of these are quite popular and often space is limited.
