Winter Market - Our winter market has lots to offer on Saturday, December 4th.  Don't miss the festive atmosphere and the chance to check off gifts from your list (plus a little something for yourself).  PLUS, our market has grown this year with over 75 vendors and extending now onto 2nd Street.  Don't miss it! 


Santa Visits Nickel Plate Station in Edwardsville - Santa is very excited to get to come back to Edwardsville and visit all his little friends again in 2021.  But don't miss the new location!  Santa is free to all our little friends.  And while you are there, you can get a sneak peek at the amazing Arctic Express Exhibit featured in the room adjoining by the Edwardsville Children's Museum. 


The North Pole Christmas Shoppe -

  • Santa's Secret Store (Second Floor at the Wildey Events Space) - The Elf Workshop is BACK and with it comes Santa's Secret Shop.  This special store helps make it possible for children to experience the joy of choosing their own special holiday gifts for family and friends.  The shop will be set up at Wildey Theatre Event Space and supervised by our volunteer elves.  

  • Elf Workshop (Third Floor at the Wildey Events Space) - The Elf Workshop is BACK and will be set up on the 3rd floor ready for kiddos to decorate and craft their own special gifts.  Sign up for a two hour spot and drop your kiddos off with our elves to get creative.  Grab a local bite to eat or do some shopping yourself.  Then come back and hear about memories made.


Santa's Special Delivery Boxes - Santa's elves have been kind enough to leave us boxes to deliver.  They are FULL of goodies that are a treat to the eye, mind and tummy.  Don't miss out.  Limited supply and delivery time is short!  They will be delivered right to your front door by one of our very own elves!
