Check off your Christmas to-do list at this Santa’s Wonderland event!

Mark your Christmas calendars! Starting November 7th at 5 PM until December 24th, head to your local Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shops where the kids can take a FREE picture with Santa – including a free digital download.

Much like everything else, Santa’s meet & greet will look a bit different this year. Stores are taking safety precautions like requiring face masks, temperature screenings, and social distancing, and the Big Guy will be behind an acrylic barrier.

In order to attend this event, you must make a reservation here. Note there is a maximum amount of 8 people for each group photo with Santa.

Kids can also mail letters to Santa and families can enjoy outdoor tailgating event that include giveaways, hot cocoa, and more holiday fun!

Even better, while supplies last, you can take home free holiday craft activity kits for the kiddos.

    Book now, I just checked and it was nearly booked up on all my surrounding stores.

    I just booked. Slots are filling up quick near me

    Looks like my store is only opening availability a few weeks out. There are openings for next week, but nothing else through December. I assume they don’t want people booking that far in advance because they are less likely to show.

    Thanks for the heads up!! Our store only had 2 days with spots open!

      I see now where reservations are only available up to seven days in advance.

    This is a yearly tradition for us. Yes they are only booking 7 days out so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see very many slots available right now. However, if you find a store with an opening at 5 o’clock still this Saturday they have fun little extras!

    Most Simon and Brookfield malls are going to as well have Santa by appointment only and 6 ft away! (Local manager for one 😉 )

  8. Christmas Lover

    According to the email I was sent by Bass Pro, reservations are available 7 days out. We got one for this coming Wed. Hoping to score one later closer to Christmas when we have our nice outfits. Just keep checking back and you should be able to secure a spot!!

    None available in my store 🙁

  10. Cathy

    NO slots available from now all the way to Dec24th.

    My store only gave a free 4×6 print on the spot and not a free digital download. The download was $15 I believe. Did anyone else have this experience?
