A Very COVID Christmas at Dartmouth Mall as Santa Returns in 2020
Santa will be at the Dartmouth Mall for in-person and virtual options to take photos with the public. This visit with the Jolly Man in Red will look very different from previous years.
According to a recent press release, Santa and his reindeer will be arriving at Dartmouth Mall on Wednesday, November 11 to kick-off the holiday season. In an effort to create touchless experiences and accommodate varying levels of visitor comfort, Santa will be available at Dartmouth Mall via numerous experiences and offerings:
Pictures with Santa: Reserve your spot to take a picture with Santa and continue a beloved holiday tradition! This year, for the safety of visitors and himself, Santa will be stationed behind a plexiglass protection shield with a bench in front for visitors to sit. Guests are able to interact with Santa through the shield and when it comes time for pictures, guests and Santa are permitted to remove their masks for a quick snap! For an added bonus, Monday through Thursday, visitors can upgrade their experience and schedule storytime with Santa.
Virtual Experience: Interact with Santa from the comfort of your home with a virtual experience this holiday season. Make a reservation to join a special five-minute one-on-one Zoom call with Santa and as a fun gift, keep a priceless recording of the conversation as a takeaway.
Family Pet Photos on Mondays: We can’t forget about our furry friends! Starting the first Monday after Santa’s arrival, bring the family and your pet for photos with Santa every Monday through December 14.
Family Photos: Want to capture a family photo or an image for your holiday card? We’ve got you covered! Make a reservation for a family photo on our Holiday backdrop before heading over to visit Santa.
Visit with Santa: Photo shy, but still want to say “hi” to Santa? Visits with Santa are free and are sure to put a smile on his face! Although visits with Santa are free, reservations are still required. All pictures will be available in digital and print formats.

All of these offerings will be available from Wednesday, November 11 through Thursday, December 24. This will be open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm and on Sundays from 12 noon to 5 pm. Visitors must wear masks and practice social distancing.
