Santa Claus Is Coming to (Down)Town!

December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Saturday, December 2nd, join us in Downtown Bangor for Santa’s Workshop with free cookie decorating!

It’s not that often that Santa Claus has time to drop by in the middle of making toys for all the boys and girls! Santa will be in Downtown Bangor at Central Meeting House (29 Central Street) from 1 – 4 pm. Santa will be present for lap-sitting and picture-taking.

Santa’s Workshop is presented by The Briar Patch and Bagel Central.

Special thanks to our event sponsor First National Bank and media sponsor The Maine Edge.

• The event is FREE!
• Santa’s Workshop is at Central Meeting House (29 Central Street) this year, between Bagel Central and The Briar Patch.
• There will be no professional photographer on site. Families are encouraged to bring their own camera or use their mobile phones to take pictures.
• Please be patient. Santa will try to see everyone while he is downtown, but he will need to leave promptly at 4 because he has to get ready for the Festival of Lights parade.
• And most of all, he knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!

Following Santa’s visit, the Festival of Lights Parade 2017 will begin at 4:30 pm. The parade is presented by the Rotary Club of Bangor, Maine and will feature marching bands, floats, dancers and other performing groups representing various winter holidays such as Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s and more!

The City Tree Lighting will take place in West Market Square directly following the parade.
