2022 Season

The Shillito’s Elves are back this year 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 an additional new scene!  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 season there are two separate locations to see the elves.  There are several outdoor storefront windows near fountain square featuring more of the Shillito’s Elves.  They can be seen anytime of the day and are animated during select hours of the day.  The 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 info@thesantaworkshop.com.
