Santa in Downtown 2024

Free (plus parking)

Nov 25 - Dec 23

12:00pm - 4:00pm

Summer Street

Weekends

Stop by Downtown for a free visit with Santa! You can catch Old Saint Nick every Saturday and Sunday from November 25 to December 23, between 12-2 pm and 3-4 pm.


The Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (BID) is a collection of owners who hope to entice families with free events in their 34-block area.


While the event is free, parking is not. You can find meters and parking garages close by. Ride sharing or public transportation may be the better option. If you're curious where else you can spot Santa, we made a list for you here.
