The 2020 edition of Santa's Village has been named "Ten Nights of Santa" and will be held at the EarlyWorks Children's Museum to help uphold safe capacity limits, social distancing and sanitizing protocols.

The program will have several features to help ensure the safety of its guests, including being protected by "Santa's Magic Snow Globe."

There will be a limited number of tickets that will be sold online and will adhere to the Alabama Department of Public Health safety protocols.

“Santa’s Village has been a family holiday tradition for more than 2 decades, no one on the planning committee could imagine canceling the beloved event, so our team has designed an alternate program that will maintain much of the magic and at the same time keep our visitors safe,” Executive Director of the EarlyWorks Museum Bart Williams said. “We know we will not be able to exactly duplicate all the features of the traditional Santa’s Village, but I think the planning team has come up with a fantastic safety-inspired substitution. We fully intend to be back to normal in the future.”
