Santa's Alley Workshop

Christmas is right around the corner and Jolly Old Saint Nick is gearing up for some fun right here in the heart of La Grange! The North Pole may be central command but Santa’s decided to “love local” with a merry pop-up workshop at The Alley Shop (16 W Harris Ave, La Grange) and he's inviting you and your family to come for a visit!

Santa's Alley Workshop is a wonderful and convenient way to visit with Santa...just your family and the Big Guy for 30 minutes! It will be time well spent with the people you love, making memories that will last a lifetime. It’s like your own private meet-and-greet with a rock star! Pet friendly too!

From the moment you enter Santa's Alley Workshop, you'll delight in the sights, sounds and activities!

  • Refreshments and treats at Santa's well-appointed hot cocoa bar.
  • Kids can write/color their wish lists for Santa and drop them in the official North Pole mailbox.
  • Create a keepsake craft at the workshop's craft station.
  • Have Santa sign the back of your take-home ornament. (One per child.)
  • Curated goods available for sale if you want to do some seasonal shopping!


Whether you're hanging with Santa, sipping some hot cocoa or sitting around the craft table, you'll enjoy the scenic decor and wintery backdrops...perfect for ALL the picture taking! (Take your own or bring a photographer along if you wish!)
