That’s right, folks! This incredible event is free to attend, courtesy of MAPS. All you need to cover are your own expenses for food and lodging. We’ve partnered with the Four Points Sheraton, where you can enjoy a comfortable stay and make the most of this enchanting weekend. And with the SVRC Marketplace as our event venue, you’ll be immersed in a delightful atmosphere that truly captures the essence of Christmas.

🎉 Experience the Magic 🎅

For two days straight, Saturday and Sunday, the doors of the event will swing open promptly at 8am, inviting you into a world of merriment and laughter. With delightful sessions specially crafted for both Santa and Mrs. Claus, this is your chance to enhance your Christmas performance skills and create memories that will warm hearts throughout the holiday season.

On Saturday, we’ll take a break from the action-packed sessions to savor a delicious lunch at the food court downstairs. You’ll have a chance to mingle with fellow Christmas performers, share stories, and recharge for the exciting evening ahead. Speaking of which, dinner on Saturday will be an absolute treat at Uno’s Pizza, conveniently located at the Four Points Sheraton.
