Santa’s Workshop

The Shillito’s Elves are back for the 2023 season with their nostalgic SantaLand experience!

The Shillito’s Elves are in Mariemont this season with a walk-through experience similar to the original SantaLand that was at the Shillito department store in the 1980’s.  Mail your letter to Santa in the original mailbox and then tour his workshop featuring over 60 of the restored animated elves in 14 largely original scenes starting with the mailroom and ending with NORAD’s Santa tracking command center. All the same nostalgic scenes with a few updates this season!  This display is fun for all ages and is wheelchair accessible.  Unfortunately, Santa is very busy this time of year and will not be available at this display.

This large indoor display is similar to the original walk-through SantaLand and we are located in Mariemont, across from the Mariemont Inn, next to LaRosa’s. 

Private group views are available this year outside of normal operating hours.  For more information, please send an email to
