Santa Claus is coming to town! Santa will be cruising into the Charlotte-area this Saturday. He’s here to enjoy Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s. The events begin this Saturday, November 6th with a welcome outdoor tailgate event where Santa will fittingly arrive in a tracker boat. After enjoying his time at the event Santa will make his way inside to Santa’s Wonderland, the free event that transforms the outdoor retailer into a magical Christmas village with FREE games, fun activities, and festive giveaways.

As a part of Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas families will be able to visit with St Nick himself as part of a “Contactless Claus” experience.  Free Photos with Santa will begin on November 7 with FREE advance reservations, which can be made beginning November 1.

Throughout the holiday season, visitors will have the opportunity to:

  • Visit Santa and get a photo FOR FREE
  • Reserve a virtual spot to see Santa up to a week in advance through the digital reservation system
  • Santa’s Wonderland experience includes games, crafts and a letter box to send your holiday wish list to the North Pole
