24th Annual Santa on the Chimney

Time: 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Cost: Included with Park admission.

Chimney Rock has become Santa’s favorite place to train for his big night of deliveries. There’s no way he could make it down so many chimneys without practice. What better place to prepare and stay in shape than on one of the world’s largest chimneys at Chimney Rock State Park? Make your list and bring it to Santa, enjoy live holiday music, hot cocoa, cookies and meet live Park animal ambassadors.

UPDATE 12/10

Due to incoming inclement weather, Santa will not be able to safely rappel down the Chimney tomorrow. While we are sorry Santa won’t get some extra practice in for Christmas Eve, Mrs. Claus will be at the Old Rock Café from 8am to 11am for Breakfast with the Elves, and Santa himself may make an appearance near the end of the morning. Local poet Eddie Cabbage will be there helping kids write their letters to the North Pole. Although there will be no special activities inside the Park tomorrow, come enjoy a festive pancake breakfast prepared by the elves at the Old Rock and grab a photo with Santa, too!
