Santa will be arriving in town around 2 pm on December 11, 2021. If we have inclement weather, Santa's journey may be rescheduled.

A few notes for our community:

  • We do our best to pass and stop by as many homes as we can, but due to safety concerns, we cannot stop on county roads such as Main St, Hamburg Tpk, Union Ave, and Macopin Rd.
  • Our route is updated and changed a little each year to help our volunteers be more efficient, they are giving up time with family and friends to help Santa.
  • Please do not call the Bloomingdale Police Dept regarding Santa's Visit, we cannot accommodate special requests or return trips.
  • Due to the nature of the event arrival times of Santa in your neighborhood are not feasible.
  • If you missed Santa on his trek, come visit Santa around 8 pm at Sloan Park. This is an estimated time and he may arrive earlier or later by a few minutes!

UPDATE: Santa Claus is coming to Bloomingdale! Raindate: 12/12!
