Evenings in late December sparkle with the return of Fairy Winterland at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland. This magical multicultural event brings families together to share in the season’s festivities. 

We’re decking the Fairyland halls with thousands of twinkly lights. 

Yes, Black Santa will be there. From his cozy seat in the park, he will  get to visit with children and each evening at 6:30 p.m., he will  lead the Festival of Lights Parade, where each child will receive a treat. While at the park, drop your child’s “Letter to Santa” in the special mechanical mailbox at the Chapel of Peace. We’ll make sure he gets it. 

Fairyland also hosts a culturally-inclusive holiday scavenger hunt and special performances. And, yes, you’ll be able to cozy up with a complimentary cup of hot cocoa and cider.

"Thank  you, Santa" Nights

Once upon a time at Fairyland, children would come say "thank you" to Santa the days following Christmas. Fairyland has decided to continue this tradition! 

Before the big trip back to the North Pole, Black Santa will spend a few more evenings at Fairy Winterland. Each night at 6:30 p.m., he will lead the Festival of Lights parade, where each child will receive a treat. If you like, bring your child's "thank you" cards to the special mechanical mailbox at the Chapel of Peace. We'll make sure he sees every single one. 

 Plus, enjoy all the other Fairy Winterland delights: complimentary hot cocoa or cider, special performances, our culturally inclusive scavenger hunt and thousands of twinkling lights!
