EarlyWorks Brings Christmas Magic to Life

Decatur, Ala. – One of Huntsville’s most beloved holiday events, Santa’s Village, will open Friday, November 29, 2019, at the Historic Huntsville Depot. 

The magic of the holiday season comes to life each year during Santa’s Village, North Pole Express. During the four-week long fantasyland, the jolly old elf himself will be on hand each night to listen to children as they share their wish lists. No visit to Santa would be complete without meeting his North Pole elves and Mrs. Claus. 

Additional family-friendly activities adding to the whimsical fun include nightly snowfalls, making crafts in the North Pole Express train car, mingling with costumed characters, decorating a cookie, mailing your letters to Santa in the North Pole Post Office, enjoying musical entertainment on the Tinsel Tunes Stage and shopping in Santa’s gift shop. Kids will have plenty of room to play and enjoy the spirit of the season and they can even test their skills in the icicle maze.  

Santa’s Village, North Pole Express will begin welcoming visitors Friday, November 29 and run nightly from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. until December 23 at the Historic Huntsville Depot located at 320 Church Street in downtown Huntsville. Admission is $7 per person. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at or at the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum and the Historic Huntsville Depot. Children under two years old are admitted free.

Santa's Village, North Pole Express is a fundraiser for the EarlyWorks Family of Museums. Proceeds from the event fund the educational initiatives of the EarlyWorks Family of Museums.
