Santa Claus Factory

Santa is looking forward to welcoming children and adults in his factory!

From 23 November to 6 January, from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm

In one of the most evocative places of Padua, inside the historic city walls, the Santa Claus Factory is based.

This is where children will come and deliver their letters to Santa Claus, and this is where they will have the chance to take part in several workshops to create not only original letters but also decorations for presents, for the house, for the Christmas tree and personalized greeting cards with their own hands.

The Factory will be inaugurated on the 23rd of November at noon in presence of the authorities and of the trade associations.

To make everything even more magical and real, on the 8th of December Santa Claus will arrive at the Factory, to check the progress of the work carried out inside his factory, but also to listen to his little helpers’ wishes. Santa will come back to the village on the weekends form 3:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Enjoy a walk and stop by the 18 wooden houses of the Christmas Market where gifts, Christmas furniture and clothing shops, as well as producers of the best food and wine delicacies will give you the opportunity to purchase many original gifts!

There will also be a Christmas train directed towards the most important places of Christmas in Padua.

Each Sunday and Saturday of Advent, moreover, the Factory and the historic center will be the setting for many events that will be appreciated by both children and adults: parades of stilt walkers dressed as the Grinch, the Snow Queen and Santa Claus, the Barberia Organ Festival and much more!

Santa Claus Factory and all the collateral events are organized by World Appeal.
