Jolly Old Saint Nicholas has found his way to Fort Collins!

He can be spotted around town as he likes to make sure children of all ages have a chance to tell Santa all their wishes.

Old Town Square

Santa set up his workshop right in the heart of downtown in Old Town Square. You’ll find him waiting for the kids Friday through Sunday and extra days leading up to Christmas. After visiting Santa, take a spin on the skating rink next to Santa’s Workshop. Admission and skate rentals are free!

Foothills Mall

Santa wants to make sure kids in midtown don’t have to go far to visit so you can also find him at the Foothills Mall. You can skate The Pond, have your presents wrapped, and listen to the sounds of the season by local school groups.

Front Range Village

Santa likes to get out and about so you’ll find him strolling through Front Range Village along with carolers. But don’t worry, there will be opportunities to tell Santa your wishes and pose for a photo. There’s also an Elf on the Shelf Scavenger Hunt happening. Grab the whole family and see how many you can find.


We’re sure there will be other Santa sightings around town. It’s that special time of year!
