Visits & Photos with Santa in Marin & the San Francisco Bay Area

Santa Photos Town Center Corte Madera

Here's our 2022 guide to visits, photo ops, and breakfasts with Santa Claus in the Bay Area. We'll keep adding to this list as we learn of more events, so check back often!

We make every effort to assure that all listings and hours are as accurate as possible, but occasionally Santa has to take a break to feed the reindeer or tidy up his beard, so make sure to stay on his "nice" list and call or check the venue's website before visiting.
