Westerville’s Snowflake Castle is a beacon of holiday cheer. This enchanting event, nestled within the historic Everal Barn and Homestead, invites families to indulge in the magic of the season from November 27 to December 4.

Begin the Festivities with Registration

Mark your calendars, as the opportunity to secure a spot at this winter wonderland begins for Westerville residents on Monday, November 6 at 12 PM. The broader community can join the fray with open registration starting Tuesday, November 7, at the same time. With a cap of six tickets per household, promptness is as valuable as holiday cheer.

Santa’s Workshop: Crafts and Merriment

The heart of the Snowflake Castle beats in Santa’s Workshop, where the elves share the joy of toy-making. Children can craft and paint their own wooden toy, creating not just a plaything, but a cherished memory. Adults are welcomed to accompany the young artisans, with a limit of two per child, ensuring a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere.

The Homestead transforms into a yuletide haven where Santa and Mrs. Claus are ready to meet you. Families can capture a moment with the jolly couple, a keepsake of the season’s joy. The experience is not just about the photos; it’s about the warmth of the Clauses’ welcome, a tradition cherished by the community.

No Ticket? No Problem!

For those who find themselves without a ticket, the holiday craft area offers a no-cost alternative. Positioned at the entrance, this area is a trove of holiday crafts available for purchase, perfect for gifting or adding a touch of handmade charm to your home decor.

Sensory Friendly and Virtual Visits

Inclusivity is the cornerstone of the Snowflake Castle experience. A Sensory Friendly Snowflake session is scheduled for Sunday, November 26, ensuring that every child can enjoy the festivities comfortably. Moreover, Santa is just a Zoom call away for families who wish to chat with him directly, bringing North Pole magic right into their homes.

Essential Details for Attendees

Remember, a ticket is your child’s passport to toy-building fun, while adults enter free of charge. Keep your receipt handy—it’s your golden ticket to the Snowflake Castle. With the event’s popularity, adherence to the ticket and entry guidelines ensures a smooth and joyful experience for all.
